Throngs of revelers pack Las Vegas, known for its ritzy nightlife, but a few people wind up being arrested and go to jail or to a detention center. What a way to ruin a vacation, especially for those who are innocent of any wrongdoing. If the incarcerated person has a family member or friend with them on their Las Vegas excursion, they may be successful at posting bail to get them out of jail quickly.
Clark County Detention Center (CCDC)
After the unlucky arrested person is escorted to the Clark County Detention Center, they receive free phone call privileges after being processed into the system. Several avenues are available to help the incarcerated person gain release prior to their assigned court date. Otherwise, they will remain in jail for up to 72 hours for their court appearance. Holidays and weekends will slow the process further since courts are never open on those days.
Las Vegas Detention Center
This detention site is unmistakable because it looks like a high-security prison with two watchtowers and visible barb-wired fencing around the perimeter. Anyone can inquire about an inmate here, 24/7. However, the definite release time is never given since many factors affect the exact time of release for each prisoner. Generally, a six-hour window is the closest time frame for release that can be expected.
North Las Vegas Detention Center
Arrested individuals who were once at the North Las Vegas Detention Center, which is no longer operating, are now found at the detention facility located at 3300 Stewart Avenue. Currently, everyone who is arrested goes to one of the other three area jails.
Henderson Detention Center
Prisoners who go to the Henderson Detention Center, Nevada consider it much nicer than the other two facilities. For this reason, it has been nicknamed The Country Club. Incredibly, this compound employs over one hundred workers for a prisoner population of 500, and it has medical personnel on duty 24/7. Inquiry phone calls regarding inmates are accepted around the clock, and bail releases take place at all hours as well.
