        Does your jail make you do a property intake of the person?

          What do you mean by that? Any prisoner property is logged by a jailer. Some property they can keep on their person, other goes into a bag kept by the jail. Items that are too big, valuable, or otherwise unacceptable by the jail is placed in the department property storage facility.

            When we take someone to jail, we have to fill out their intake form, documenting all of the property they have on their person (money, credit cards, wallet, belt, etc etc etc) and then we put all of their property into different bags depending on what the property is. Then we fill out all of their information, including emergency contact. Then we give all of this to the jail staff and they look over the paper work before they'll take the prisoner.

              Welcome to Collin County.

              Texas Jail Standards states that the jail officer/deputy at intake is to inventory all property and sign the inventory. What Collin County does is redundant in that they make the arresting officer inventory everything. Anything the jailer finds on the prisoner is added to the inventory sheet. So, basically your prisoner is searched twice at the jail.

              You have only just begun learning the joys of dealing with the Collin County jail.

                  Sounds like you might be in Harris County. Heard it is a ton of fun to book someone in there.

                    So I've heard.. the process is frustrating, but what is more frustrating than that is how extremely slow the jail is even after turning in all the paper work. I brought in a PI one night, about 1 o clock, no one else inside the intake area, and I was there for about 45 minutes. I know everyone at my PD talks about how bad it is to bring someone there, and I'm not quite sure why they've been able to get away with that process. I guess because most of the other bigger departments have their own jail.

                        Im going to say that Travis County takes the longest. If the sally port is full, intake is full, and the line at the nurse is long.... youre looking at possibly 1.5 to 2 hours.

                          Shoot. You're looking at that at Dallas when it's NOT busy

                            Guess I got spoiled... last jail was much smaller, but hell it seemed like we were bringing more people in than the current. My process there was dropping off the inmate, did about 10-15 minutes of paper work and I was out. That was for a criminal charge. If it was a warrant I was out in 2-3 minutes.

                              This is an interesting thread. Thanks for taking the time to post step by step processes for the different jails.
