What is the typical arrest and booking process?

If you are arrested, you will be read the Miranda warning as you are taken into custody. Police officers are required to read these rights to you if you are going to be questioned. From the place of your arrest, you will be taken to the police station for booking. The booking process typically includes:

  • Fingerprinting
  • Photographs
  • Questioning
  • Searches
  • Confiscation of property

After the booking is complete, you will either be allowed to leave the station until your scheduled hearing date, or you may be jailed with or without bail.
