It is the policy of J. Reuben Long Detention Center to govern the admission and booking of all new inmates, transferred inmates, and inmates returned by other jurisdictions to ensure legal detention and medical fitness for incarceration. The Detention Center will not incarcerate or hold any person except under appropriate legal authority and documentation. The arresting agency can place a detainer on the arrestee to obtain charging documents for a time not to exceed 24 hours from the time the detainer was placed.
1. Booking Process - The Detention Center maintains accurate and complete records on all persons incarcerated at
the facility. In addition to paper files and records, the Detention Center uses Motorola’s Offendertrak system to
maintain electronic records of all inmates. Offendertrak maintains records on admission, processing and release
of inmates. Offendertrak issues a new booking number for each detainee, but maintains a single inmate account
record for a given inmate.
2. Medical Screening - Medical staff and/or security personnel screens any arrestee who appears injured, acutely
ill, in a stupor, or an apparent coma (even though the cause may be intoxication).
3. Booking Information Collected:
a. Identification data.
b. Charge and bond data.
c. Property inventory, storage and receipt.
d. Hold, warrant, detainer and extradition data, both local and NCIC.
e. Criminal history data.
f. Photograph and fingerprint data, as required.
g. Medical and mental health screening to include current and preexisting illness, current medication
behavioral observation, body deformities, skin condition and infestation.
i. Housing with separation from general population until classification.
4. Inmate telephones - The Booking seating area and all Booking cells have telephones available for the inmates.
At the completion of the booking process, inmates may use the telephone to contact an attorney, family member
or other contact person.
5. Bond Hearings - The Detention Center has bond hearings twice a day, seven days a week. Holiday hours may vary.
A bond hearing may be delayed if a victim is involved and they want to attend the bond hearing.
