Have you ever wondered what it is like to get arrested? Sure you may have seen an arrest on TV, but that does not always show everything. The booking can take a lot longer than it does on TV shows, and involves more than they show. Hollywood likes to speed up the process to make it fit within the story.
First, they are going to need some personal information, such as you name, birthday, and current place of residence. They will take all of this information down, along with the crime that you have been arrested for. Following this, they will take your mugshot and get you fingerprinted.
You will also have to go through a full body search, and the officers will confiscate any personal belongings that you have on you. Meanwhile, another officer will be running your information through the system to see if you have any outstanding warrants.
After all of this, you will be placed in a holding cell. Depending on where you were arrested, and the size of the station, you may be held there, or you may be transferred to a larger facility. If you are transferred, your stay and jail could get longer, since you cannot be bailed out until all of the transfer paperwork has been processed.
