Bail and Bonds


All inmates booked in the Whittier City Jail are eligible to be released on bail or bond, unless specified by warrant, court order, bail schedule, or the level of the inmate's intoxication makes it unsafe to release the inmate.

The bail schedule is established pursuant to the Uniform Bail Procedures Committee and approved by the judges of the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles.

Bail is the deposit of Cash, Cashiers Check, Money Order, or Personal Check from a California Bank for the entire amount specified. Deposited monies will be returned after the appearance of the individual bailed out and according to the rules established by the court receiving the bail.  Bail money will be returned only by the court.

Bond is the deposit of a Surety Bond by a Licensed Bail Bond Company for the amount of the bail. The Whittier Police Department or its employees will not recommend any specific Bail Bond Company. Bail Bond Companies can be located in the telephone book and they can provide specifics regarding fees and cost associated with the use of their services.
