The size of the facility, how busy it is at any given time and the number of staff on hand will determine how long the release process will take. For most facilities in Las Vegas, the release process takes anywhere from 2 to 12 hours. Once bond has been posted, law enforcement officers must go through a series of steps to ensure they have everything they need from the defendant before they are let go. Information must be verified and final statements must be made. The bail bondsmant will be waiting when the defendant is finally allowed to leave and will take the defendant home and go over the details of the bail bonds agreement.
