Several places are closed on holidays in Indiana. But since so much mischief can happen on Halloween, it is pertinent to ask whether or not bail bond agencies or county jails will be operating that day. Of course law enforcement never takes a day off, and arrests will never stop; but do county jails and courts allow bail on holidays? Do bail bondsmen even work on Halloween? If your friend is arrested on Halloween, and you want to know if you can get them out of jail, continue reading and find out!
Halloween Bail Bonds
Bail bond agencies typically never close, holiday or not. Also, jails and magistrate’s offices never take a day off either. This means, no matter what time, day, or holiday it is, you CAN bail your friend or loved one out of jail, but not without some potential and likely obstacles. You see, jails in general take a substantial amount of time processing inmates into their detention facilities. And then they take just as long to process them out. You can expect to wait anywhere from a few hours to a few days before getting your loved one released from county jail. Now if you must add in the fact that it’s a weekend, you can expect this time to increase by 25% or more. But if it’s a holiday, you can go ahead and double the time.
So although bail bond companies, jails, and judge’s offices are open and operational, you may not be able to bail your friend or loved one out of jail on Halloween, or any holiday for that matter, since it may take more than 24 hours due to high traffic in the jails.
