Anyone brought to the Bradley County jail can expect the booking process to take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours, based on the work load of the booking office staff and the availability of documents that are needed to complete the booking process.
Once this step is completed, if a bond is set you will be allowed to make a bond to begin the release process.
Those who cannot make bond or who are to remain in custody by an order of the court are required to shower to begin a period of incarceration. They will receive an initial supply of clothing, socks, shoes, and underwear. Clothing worn into the jail and any property in their possession when they were accepted by the corrections staff is kept in a secure area until their release.
