If you are arrested in Nashville, you can expect to end up in a Nashville jail. The Davidson Criminal Justice Center is the county jail, located at 448 2nd Ave N. Most likely, the first thing that will happen when you are arrested is that you’ll be taken to the jail for booking. Booking is the process where the jail records certain information about you, including your name and address, fingerprints, and photograph, and it uses this information to check to see whether there are any outstanding warrants for you, locally or in other states.
Once your information has been entered into the arrest system, a judge will set your court date and determine bail. If you are to remain in police custody, the jail will also conduct a full body search and take any personal items, which will be returned to you upon your release from jail. You are typically allowed to make one or more phone calls at this point. This is when you might want to call a close friend or family member, a lawyer, and/or a Nashville bail bonding agent.
In Nashville, bail may be posted in one of several ways, but the most common is the bail bond or surety bond. This is how it works:
You contact a certified Nashville bail bonding company, such as All Knight Bonding.
You and your co-signers enter into a contract with the bonding company in which you and your co-signers promise to appear in court as required in exchange for our posting of a bail bond on your behalf.
We post your bail bond to secure your release from jail.
You must appear every time the court requires.
When the criminal process is over, regardless of the outcome, the bail bond is discharged, and you pay only the premium to us, minus any fees.
