What to do, After You’ve been Arrested


Okay you have been arrested?  Now what.  Being arrested can be a horrifying experience, even if you do contact a bail bondsman you might still be wondering what to do and where do I go from here?

Raleigh Police Arrest

If you have been arrested recently it’s important that you follow the following steps.

  1. The first thing you need to do, if arrested, is remain calm. If you panic or try to run from the police, you will make the situation worse than it should be.
  2. Once you arrive at the jail, the arresting officer will process you. This includes finger printing and taking a mug shot.  They will then ask you questions regarding your contact information. It’s best to be honest to officers during their questioning.
  3. Jails do not have to give you one phone call. However, they will usually ask if you want to contact anyone. It’s important that you use this phone call to contact a loved one and let them know where you are.
  4. More than likely you will probably have to stay in a holding cell for an undisclosed amount of time. It’s important that you remain calm. An unruly guest can often be seen as detriment and this can be held against you later if your case goes to court.

Remember, if you have been arrested, it’s important that you remain calm throughout the process. No matter who you contact, a Raleigh bail bondsman, family or friend, you need to remain calm until they arrive.
