This website has been created to provide you with information about the Laguna Beach Police Department and the Orange County Jails system, arrest procedures and how bail may be posted either at the Laguna Beach Jail on Forest Avenue or at any one of the main Orange County Jails.

The Laguna Beach Police Department has a holding cell and arrestees are kept there 24 hours before being transferred to one of three county incarceration facilities: the Central Jail Complex (the main county jail), the Theo Lacey Jail or the James A. Musick Jail.

If someone you know is currently in the Laguna Beach Police Station, the release process can be quick.  However, once they are transferred to an County Jail it can take up to twelve hours before they can be bailed out, even though bail can be posted there 24/7.

At Greg Rynerson Bail Bonds, we can help you. Please call us immediately so that we can call the Laguna Beach Police and let them know of our intent to post bail and stop the arrestee’s transfer.

Call Greg Rynerson Bail Bonds – day or night – toll free at 888-224-5266 or (888) BAIL BOND.


Greg Rynerson Bail Bonds is a family owned company that has bondsmen who are local to all of the Orange County jails and the Laguna Beach Police Department.  We can also post bail for you anywhere in California.

If a defendant is not bailed out of a jail, he or she will generally remain in custody until the matter has been resolved in court.  This can take weeks.

The benefit of arranging with us to post a bail bond is that the defendant will have more time to acquire legal help, return to work and be with their families.

Our fully licensed bondsmen can help you with: booking, case and warrant information, court appearances, times and dates, charges and, of course, bail. Our consultation is free.

Plus, we will do everything we can to make filling out our bail application as quick and easy as possible. Our application only takes minutes to complete, and we can send it to you by fax, email, or meet you in person.


The City of Laguna Beach boasts seven miles of city beaches, canyons and coastal hills. During summer, millions flock here for the city’s art festivals and the renowned Pageant of the Masters. Laguna Beach, along with many cities in Orange County, is considered to be one of the safest places to live in the USA.  Nevertheless, crime can occur here like everywhere else, and when it does, the officers of the Laguna Beach Police Department are on hand to make arrests.  This police station has an on-site holding cell and bail can be posted here, but defendants are only held at the station itself for 24 hours or less.  As soon as they are booked into the system (and sometimes even before), they are sent to one of four main Orange County jails:  Men’s Central Jail/The Central Jail Complex, Women’s Central, The Theo Lacy Jail and the James A Musick.

The Central Jail Complex are next door to the Santa Ana Police Department.

The Theo Lacy Jail is located in the city of Orange.  It contains 3,100 inmates, making it the largest jail in the county. The Theo Lacy Jail has free standing, barrack style dorms that are surrounded by fences.  Each dorm has its own outdoor yard.  Theo Lacy houses both minimum security and maximum security inmates that serve their time in dorms that contain others who have committed similar offenses.

The James A. Musick Jail, which is also known as The Farm, is minimum security prison located between Lake Forest and Irvine.  There, about 1300 inmates of both sexes work and take part in both educational and rehabilitative programs.  These inmates are a low security risk and most are serving time for crimes like DUIs, minor drug possession, burglary, skipping out on child support, and/or prostitution.

If an arrestee is not bailed out at the Laguna Beach Police Department they are usually transferred to the Orange County Jail Intake-Release Center (IRC) in downtown Santa Ana.  The IRC is the entry point to the Orange County Jail system.  Arrestees are screened for medical and mental health issues, booked and then assigned a housing unit.  This takes several hours but when the process is finished, licensed Bail Bondsmen are allowed to bail an arrestee out, either in the IRC or at whatever jail they’ve been taken to.
