What happens when someone gets arrested?
When someone is arrested in Norwalk they are taken to one of two locations, the local Sheriff’s Station or the Los Angeles County Jail and processed as an inmate. As part of this process, their fingerprints are taken and checked against a number of databases to determine their identity and if they have any outstanding warrants. A mug shot is also taken. After processing, if male inmates do not bail out immediately they will most likely be transferred to the Inmate Reception Center; female inmates are transferred to the closest female jail facility where space is available.
