Information You Need To Obtain..
Get out a pen and some paper. You should get the following useful information from Central Booking, the Police Department that made the arrest, or the Arraignment Clerk at the Criminal Courthouse:
Date & Time of Arrest:
County of Arrest:
These Items will be helpful for tracking your loved one through the New York Criminal Courts and Central Booking. The ARREST NUMBER is used by CENTRAL BOOKING and the POLICE DEPARTMENT (NYPD) to track people. The DOCKET NUMBER is used by the CRIMINAL COURT to track a Defendant’s Case. Each case gets a separate docket number. Each time someone is arrested, they get assigned a different ARREST NUMBER. The best way to get information is to call central booking and get the person’s ARREST NUMBER and then call the Arraignment Clerk’s at the Criminal Court in the County in which the person was arrested to get a Docket Number and find out when the person might be arraigned.
If someone is arrested, especially when the arrest was in the evening, that person will probably not see a judge until the next day. Sometimes, the person will see a judge the same day. A good rule of thumb, which is not absolute, is that the process can take about 24 hours.
OFTEN THE PHONES ARE BEING STAFFED BY ONE OR TWO PEOPLE FOR THE WHOLE COUNTY. THE CLERKS WORK VERY HARD. THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH HUNDREDS OF CONFUSED PEOPLE A DAY. DESPITE YOUR FRUSTRATION, BE KIND AND FRIENDLY TO THE CLERKS. PEOPLE SOMETIMES FORGET THAT A CLERK THAT PICKS UP THE PHONE IS JUST DOING HIS OR HER JOB AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ARREST THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE. BY PICKING UP THE PHONE, THAT PERSON HAS SHOWN THAT HE OR SHE WOULD LIKE TO HELP YOU AND GET YOU INFORMATION, IF HE OR SHE CAN. A LITTLE KINDNESS CAN GO A LONG WAY!
WWW.CENTRALBOOKING.INFO is run by a private law firm. We have tried to compile information helpful to those who have had a friend or loved one arrested in New York City. This site however, IS NOT RUN BY THE COURTS, OR ANY GOVERNMENT AGENCY. We have tried throughout the site to help the General Public and our clients navigate the arraignment, central booking and arrest process by providing what we believe is information that will be helpful.
