A city jail is different than a county jail. City jails are maintained by city police department while county jails are headed by Sheriffs. A city jail is more like a temporary lockup where accused are held up only temporarily. They are eventually bailed out or transferred to a nearby county jails.
People held up are usually accused of petty crimes such as drunk driving, pick-pocketing,social nuisance creators, minor assault cases, etc.
Persons are usually held for few hours only. Once bought to the police jail, they are photographed, fingerprinted, and explained about their charges. Bail amount is determined as per severeity of crime and informed to the arrestee. They are allowed to make a call to their accquintances to arrange for their bail.
City jails are built on smaller areas and not meant to hold people for long duration. To avoid overcrowding, police usually try to dispose cases quickly. If somebody is unable to pay their bail amount, then they are presented in courts and transferred to county jail.
If your loved ones are held up in a city jail, then the best way to get more information is by calling them. Being temporary in nature, these jails usually don’t have any online jail roster. So either you have to visit the jail personally, or call at their official phone numbers.
