People don’t plan to get arrested, especially in circumstances where an incident happens which is out of character for the person being arrested. It’s not necessarily going to happen at a convenient time of day. In fact an arrest can happen at 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning, and you’ll still want to get your friend or loved one out of jail as soon as possible.
For times like these, having a bail bond agent available 24/7 becomes crucial. You want to be able to contact them at any time so you can either get more information on the process or, more likely, get your friend or loved one who’s been arrested out of jail.
Get Them on the Phone
The first and most obvious step when you’ve learned of a friend’s arrest is to find out where they are. Get as much info as possible and then make your first call which should be to a bail bonds agent. Even it’s after typical working hours or deep into the night, pick up the phone and call. It’s possible that the phone is forwarded to a cell phone that the agent will answer. More likely, the message on the phone will inform you of another emergency number you can call in which someone will be available to help right away.
Try the Web Site
If you don’t have the phone number of the bail bonds agent you need to contact, your next step should be to check out their web site. You may find an emergency line number somewhere on the site or instructions for contacting the agent after-hours.
Whatever instructions you find on the site, follow them precisely and quickly. Your goal is still to get your friend or loved one out of jail as soon as possible, so you want to try your best to stay calm and make sure you’re reading the instructions carefully. Bail bonds agents also understand your urgency, and so they have taken to using technology to help speed up the process. Some agents go as far as to allow you to fill out paperwork and even make payments online. If this is the case, bail can be facilitated without the need for you to rush down to the office in the middle of the night, which can be a complete inconvenience if you have children or work to deal with the next day.
PCS Bail Bonds does offer 24/7 bail service. We know that arrests don’t happen at the best times, and in fact often happen at odd times of the night or morning. With that in mind, we understand that offering round-the-clock services goes a long way to help ease at least some of the concern for a friend or loved one when someone they know has been arrested.
Offering 24/7 service is one thing, but offering a high level of customer service is another. PCS Bail Bonds is a part of the Fort Worth community and has been for over 25 years. We work hard to organize bail and are sensitive in the manner in which we handle people making inquiries about the process.
You should never hesitate to call PCS Bail Bonds if you have any questions about bail or if someone you know has been arrested. We’re here to help get you through what is an emotionally straining process and our experience will ensure you are informed and up-to-date every step of the way.
