Peru, IN asked in Criminal Law for Indiana

Q: How many days does a jail do a courtesy hold for another county?

I just bonded my boyfriend out from county jail but he has a hold in another county. Both jails are located in Indiana and they are located within 30 minutes of each other. I know there is usually a limit on how long a jail will hold an inmate for another county. So how many days do they have to come get him? Really I'm just trying to figure out how long it will take the other county to come pick him up because they have an O.R. order for him and I'm trying to see what day(s) I need to take off work to go pick him up.

A: In Indiana, the length of time a county jail will hold an inmate for another county varies, but it typically ranges from 48 to 96 hours. This time frame allows the other county to arrange transportation and pick up the inmate. However, specific procedures and time limits may differ depending on the circumstances and agreements between the counties involved. It's essential to contact the jail holding the inmate to inquire about the expected duration of the courtesy hold and any updates regarding the transfer process. This information can help you plan accordingly for any necessary arrangements, such as taking time off work to pick up the individual once the hold expires.
