Lakeland is the largest city in Polk County, Florida, followed by Winter Haven as the second. In 2017, the census recorded 661,645 residents living in the area. Both cities are well known for fresh water fishing. Winter Haven offers anglers fifty lakes for boating and fishing while Lakeland has just thirty-eight. However, Winter Haven is also home to Legoland, one of the state’s most visited amusement parks.
According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, there were 661,645 people residing in Polk County in 2017 with a total of 31,404 arrests. This was a 2.3% increase in the arrests made from the previous year. However, violent crimes decreased by 13.9%.
After an arrest, the person charged with a crime is taken to jail and fingerprinted. Next, mugshots are taken and then he or she is asked to make a statement. A bail amount is set by the courts allowing the defendant to be released while awaiting their court hearing. Then again, not all crimes are allowed bail. The bondsman will help to get the inmate released with a small percentage of the bail amount, which is called the ‘bail premium’.
A bail premium is the amount paid to a bail bond agent for the release of an inmate and is typically 10% of the full bail amount for state bonds and 15% for federal bail bonds. The bail premium is non-refundable.
Anyone age 18 and older with a valid ID or passport is able to bail someone out of jail in Florida. This person is referred to as an ‘indemnitor’. An indemnitor is someone who will post bail on behalf of the defendant.
If the indemnitor contacts a bail bondsman immediately following the arrest, the bond paperwork will be processed quickly and the person arrested can usually be released within six to twelve hours after fingerprinting and mugshots are taken.
