Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
Naturally, once you’re incarcerated, your only thought is about getting out. After booking, a bail amount will be set by the magistrate. If no bail is set this may mean that you will either be free to go until your trial, or you must remain in jail until your trial.
If you are are released you must promise to be in court on your court date, and you are required not to leave town.
Typically, prisoners in the Camden County Jail are given an early release in exchange for good behavior if they follow the rules and don’t cause any problems while incarcerated.
If you prove to be trustworthy, you might be given work release detail. You will have to stay the jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you might have the chance to move to a halfway house instead of jail, so it is kind of like an early release.
Bail is money that you will be required to pay in order to be released from jail until your court date. The amount you will have to pay all depends on the seriousness of your charges. You will have to pay to the courts 10 percent of the total amount set in order to be released from jail. If you don’t go to court, whoever paid your bail won’t get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You will have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the person’s info, like name, address and date of birth, they will let you know what their bail is set at. Also, you can find out how much their bail is online.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail a friend or family member out of jail is no fun, but usually, its simple to do if you have the money. First, find out if their bail is a Cash Only Bond situation. If this is the case, you won’t be able to use the services of a Bail Bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they will not accept a check. As soon as you’ve posted (paid) bond, the person will get released. If the conditions of bail are not violated, you will get this money back.
If their bail has been set too high, or you just don’t have the money, you should try a bail bondsman. They will generally charge a fee of 10 to 15 percent of the total amount of bail set, and in most cases charge a minimum fee of $100. This will not be returned to you and must be paid in cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman may request to use your assets, such as home, property or cars, as collateral.

When you finally post bail, you will get released from jail. This process will take anywhere from 30 minutes to quite a few hours. In other words the faster bail is posted, the sooner you will get let go. How quickly you get discharged might depend on if you’ve got a bond amount or if the magistrate still needs to decide on how much to set your bail at. For minor offenses, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. If you have served a sentence in jail and have a date of your release, expect to get discharged anywhere between the hours of 9am and 12pm.
How To Turn Yourself In
out against you, or if you have to begin your jail sentence, it is highly advisable that you follow the rules and go down to the jail and turn yourself in. For a warrant, report to the jail intake area, and tell them that you think they might have a warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if there is one, they will take you into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, report to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Ensure that you aren’t late. Just bring required items when you turn yourself in, for example your drivers license or photo ID, prescription medication, as well as the official sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates have to provide each visitor’s name and date of birth to the jail. This information will be entered in the visitation log as an approved visitor. Each visitor has to provide acceptable photo identification. Visitors showing up late or that is not an approved visitor will not be able to attend visitation.
Visitation procedures at Camden County Jail change often, so make sure that you review the official jail site before you go to visitation.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy

There is no limit to when you can make phone calls, how long you can talk, and how often you can make calls, but inmates must keep in mind that there are a limited number of phones, so all the inmates must share phone time. If you are disciplined for an infraction, phone calls may be limited or cut altogether.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Just the thought of spending time in Camden County Jail is no fun, soon you will become accustomed to the daily routine there. All inmates get an alarm to wake up every morning at 6:00am, and next you’ll have roll call. Next, you will eat breakfast. After breakfast, participate in the program that has been assigned to you. This could be working in the kitchen, laundry, or some sort of manufacturing job. While this may seem tedious, it may help you when you leave jail, as you are gaining experience in a certain field of work. Other inmates go to school, while some take part in mandated treatment programs. After lunch, there will be another roll call, then back to work. Your evening will be spent either in your cell or a common room. During this time dinner is served and you will be expected to take a shower. After another roll call, it’s lights out. Even though you will be confined to your cell, there may be enough light to read or write letters. Then again, most inmates welcome lights out, and try to get as much sleep as they can.
Most people are frightened at the idea of jail because they don’t know what to expect. If you have spent any time in Camden County Jail, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Camden County Jail uniform. This is normally a jumpsuit or scrubs. Of note to anyone visiting an inmate – you must be properly dressed. Any clothing considered inappropriate will not be permitted.
How To Send Money to an Inmate
You will have your own ‘bank account’ while in jail. This money is used to purchase items from the Commissary. Family and friends can deposit money into this account for you, and any money you earn while in prison will also be deposited into your account. Outside money can be paid in to your account via a money order, cash or check. If someone sends a check or money order, make sure that they write your inmate ID on it. The maximum amount you are allowed in your account is $290 per month.
The procedure to send funds to Camden County Jail inmates could change, so we suggest that you double check the the Camden County Jail website when you send money to an inmate.
The commissary is the jail store. You can purchase a number of things here, such as toiletries, snacks and writing supplies. Bear in mind that you will probably want to use the commissary daily, and any infractions will get that privilege taken away from you.
If you are on any type of prescription medication, you will be allowed to continue taking it while in jail. When you are first processed, you will be asked what medication you take. You will then be referred to the jail nurse or doctor who will be in charge of monitoring your health and prescribing your medication.
You will get three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. As expected, they are very basic, but healthy. A typical breakfast might be cereal, toast, coffee and fruit. Lunch might be spaghetti, salad, bread and milk. Dinner could be chicken casserole, rice, vegetables, dessert and milk. Contrary to popular belief, prison food has greatly improved over the years, and you might find that it’s not much different from what you would eat at home.
Pods / The Yard
The jail is designed in a ‘pod’ layout, with self contained housing arranged around an outdoor yard. Each pod has a central control station and a common room, and the inmates take turns in using the yard. The jail is designed this way to keep certain inmates together, and others away from the general population.
As with life in general, gangs are a part of prison life. Obviously it is best to avoid becoming a part of this environment as it will only lead to trouble. When you first enter prison, you might find yourself being ‘primed’ to join a gang, or worse, you might get their attention in a negative way. The best thing to do is keep your head down and don’t get involved.
