These days, it is typical to not have phone numbers and important contact information memorized since our smart phones store this type of information for us. This often refrains those arrested from making a phone call to friends or family for bail.
Fortunately in these cases, a person without contact information can simply call a local bail bondsman for help getting out of jail. But in most cases, friends and family are already working on the bonding process with a local bail bond agency; but this is where the common question mentioned before stems from.
Can We Relay Messages?
You see, friends and family members insist on notifying their loved one in jail to let them know that they are working on getting them out. They urge the bail bondsman to pass along this message to the person in jail. And although this is understandable, as we all have those we love, unfortunately it is not possible.
Once a person is in custody, there is no way to relay a message to them. This applies to friends, family, bail bondsmen, and even lawyers. The only way to have contact with a person in custody is if they call you, or if you schedule an in-jail visit during approved visitation hours.
If either of these methods are not possible, you must simply wait for the bail bond process to complete before you can speak to them again. If you have a licensed and experienced bail bondsman assisting you with your loved one’s release from jail, you can trust that the process will be safe and secure for everyone involved.
