What is the jail booking process?

The jail booking process normally takes place after a suspect is arrested and taken into custody. Several steps take place during the jail booking process, which varies from county to county:

  • The suspect’s personal information is taken by a police officer
  • Information about the alleged offense is recorded
  • The suspect’s background is searched for warrants and/or previous crimes
  • Fingerprints and photographs are taken
  • A full-body search is conducted
  • A general health check is conducted to determine whether the suspect needs medical care or is a threat to others
  • Personal items (such as keys, wallet, clothing, etc.) are taken from the suspect
  • The suspect is placed in a holding or jail cell
