In actuality, only a small percentage of inmates are arrested on violent crime charges, and they are placed in a separate holding cell. So there is really nothing to be frightened of. However, it is still important to take certain precautions to better alleviate the stress and discomfort of sitting in jail while waiting to post bond. Not only will good behavior get you a swifter booking process and better treatment from jail staff, proper behavior can also make your waiting period more comfortable and safe.
In the Jail Cell
Even though most fellow inmates are being held on non-violent criminal charges, it is best to keep your guard up while also maintaining a friendly attitude. Anyone could be emotionally unstable or under the influence of drugs or alcohol, so any external trigger could lead to outbursts, paranoia, anger, and more. For this reason, try to follow these tips when you are in jail waiting on a bail bond:
☛ Never cause a disruption by acting out or bringing attention to yourself.
☛ Do not act scared or nervous. Stay relaxed and act as if you would in an office waiting room.
☛ Do not make any derogatory statements or use foul language.
☛ Avoid talking about religion, politics, race, ethnicities, sexual conduct, and anything else that could be considered offensive.
☛ Do not disclose personal information to inmates, or volunteer information to jail staff other than the general information needed for the booking process.
☛ Do not be overly-friendly or too congenial. It could give inmates the wrong impression or send the wrong signals.
☛ Do not act suspicious or make any remarks that could make other inmates suspicious.
☛ Do not act overly-confident, arrogant, or condescending. Avoid making comments that imply you are too good to be in jail.
