A mugshot, also known as a jail booking photo, is a photo taken by the police during jail intake processing. A mugshot is made up of one full face photo and a side picture. Your name and jail ID number will be in the photos, and they are stored at the jail.

How To Get Your Mugshot Removed
Do you want to have your mugshot erased from the Flagler County Jail site? This may not be possible, because the mugshot is public record. You have to file a Petition to Expunge in court. What this means is that all of your arrest records will be sealed, so no one will be able to access them. Depending on your situation, this may be a longshot.

Bail & Bail Bondsmen – How To Get Out of Jail
If you’re in jail, your main thought is about when you get out. After you’ve gone through the booking process, bail is determined by a special judge called a magistrate. If you don’t get a bail set this can mean that you will either be released on your ‘own recognizance’ until your court date, or you don’t get released while you wait for your court date.
If you are released you are required to agree to be there for your court date, and you must not leave the county.
Usually, an inmate at Flagler County Jail will earn time off in exchange for good behavior if they don’t break the rules and act right while incarcerated.
If you follow the rules, you might be given work release detail. You will either have to stay jail each day when you’re finished with work, or you may be permitted to sleep in a halfway house when you are not working.
Bail is the amount of money that you have to pay to the courts to be released from jail until you go to court. Your bail amount is dictated by the crime you’ve been charged with. You will need to post 10% of the amount that was set so you can be released from jail. If you miss your scheduled court date, the person that paid your bail won’t get their money back.
Find Out How Much Someone’s Bail Is
You have to call the jail or the county courthouse. If you have all the person’s info, including name, address and date of birth, they’ll be able to let you know the bail amount. Also, you can check their bail amount and status on the Flagler County Jail website.
How To Bail Someone Out of Jail
Having to bail someone out of jail is no fun, but usually, its really easy. First, you need to know if it is a “Cash Bond Only” situation. If this is the case, you can’t use a bail bondsman. They only accept cash at the jail, so you have to take cash – they won’t accept checks. As soon as you’ve paid the bail bond, the prisoner will be discharged. If this person doesn’t violate any of the terms of their release, you’ll get the bail money back.
If the amount of bail set is large, or you just don’t have the money, you should try to hire a bail bondsman. Bondsmen will usually charge a fee of 10-15% of total bail, and in most cases have a minimum charge of $100. The amount you pay to the bondsman is non-refundable and the bondsman only accepts cash. If bail is very large, the bondsman will in most cases request to use assets as collateral for the bond in addition to whatever their charges are.

The jail intake procedure includes these steps:
- You will get put in a holding cell. If the jail is really busy, you will have to wait a while to get processed.
- The first thing you will have to is you will answer a bunch of questions, such as what is your full name, your address, birth date and an emergency contact person.
- You will also be asked about your psychological and medical history.
- You’ll be given an inmate ID.
- Your fingerprints will be taken.
- They will take your mugshot.
- Any personal property you have will be taken from you and will be stored until you are released.
- You will be allowed to use the telephone in order to contact a member of your family, friend, or bondsman to arrange bail.
- If you are expected to be released quickly, you might be allowed to keep wearing your own clothes, but if you are not expected to make bail quickly you will be issued a jail jumpsuit.
Have you ever been arrested and gone through processing at jail? If so, please share your experience so others can benefit from your story. How long did it take to get through intake? How were you treated? Can you tell us tips that will help other people to get through the procedure?
Tell Your Story
When you pay your bail, you will be discharged from jail. This process may take anywhere from 15 minutes to hours or even all day long. In simple terms, the faster you can post bail, the faster you will get let go. How quickly you get discharged will depend on whether or not you have a cash bond or if the magistrate still needs to decide on the bail amount. For minor charges, you will get booked and released on your own recognizance. When you have served your sentence and are given a release date, you should plan to get discharged between 9am and noon.
How To Turn Yourself In
for your arrest, or if you need to begin your jail sentence, you really should do the right thing and turn yourself in willingly. If it is for a warrant, go to the jail intake area, and tell someone that think that there is a warrant for your arrest. They will do a record check, and if there is one, they will ask that you surrender yourself and you will be taken into custody. If you have a jail sentence to serve, go to the jail on the date and time that the sentence order states. Make sure that you are not late. Make sure that you only bring allowed items when you turn yourself in, such as a driver’s license or photo ID, prescription medication, and a official sentencing order.
In order to have visitors, inmates need to provide each visitor’s full name to the jail in advance. Your visitors will be entered into a log of visitors as an approved visitor. All visitors is required to provide a photo ID when visiting. Anyone that arrives for visitation late or that is not an approved visitor will be turned away.
The Flagler County Jail visitation procedures can change, so we suggest that you double-check the official Flagler County Jail jail site before you try to go to visitation.
Phone Calls & Phone Usage Policy
The only phone calls that inmates are allowed to make are with a pre-paid phone card or account, or are collect calls . Phone calls made in jail are a lot pricier than regular phone calls. There is no limit to when and how often you can use the phone, but inmates must keep in mind that every inmate wants to use the phone too, so they can call their family. If you are disciplined for an infraction, your ability to use the phone might get reduced or forbidden completely.
Phone Number: 386-586-4871
Sending Mail to Inmates
All mail is required to be mailed using the actual US Postal Service. You must not use any other method of mail or package delivery. You have to write or type the inmate’s name, inmate number, and jail address on the letter. Don’t mail a box or package, padded envelope, plastic bag, or an envelope with metal in it. All mail received by the jail gets opened and read by the officers at the jail, and the mail will be returned if it can’t be delivered.

Get A Lawyer
If you get arrested, you still have rights, the most important of which is your right to request a lawyer. You only get so many phone calls when you get arrested, so it is important to ask a friend or family member to find an attorney when you call them. You may be asking yourself ‘do I really need an attorney?’ While you are not required to have one, a criminal defense lawyer can advise you of your rights, protect your interests and help you navigate through the complicated legal system in Flagler County. The quicker you hire an attorney to represent you and work on your charges, the better.

In addition, the Public Defender has access to private investigators, crime scene and forensics experts and social case workers.

The magistrate is the judge that will preside on your case in court. Magistrate judges do many different things, which include determining how much your bail will be, issuing warrants for arrest, and presiding over preliminary and procedural court proceedings and detention proceedings.
A defendant’s pre-sentencing report is completed to include information about the arrestee’s background and as much detail about the arrestee’s life, which the magistrate judge will take into account when deciding on the sentence. Information and personal details will be solicited from the defendant, his or her family members, and, if applicable, the victim. Be sure to remember you are allowed to request to get your own copy of the pre-sentencing report prior to sentencing, and review it for accuracy and completeness, and correct any mistakes.
If you get convicted of a crime, you will be given a sentence for your crime. The presiding judge in your case will weigh several options when determining your sentence, which include community service and probation, to prison or jail time.

Life In Jail / What Its Like
Everyone knows that being incarcerated in the Flagler County jail is quite unpleasant, in time you will become accustomed to the routine that is set for you. All inmates get an alarm to wake up each morning at six in the morning, and next you’ll have roll call. After roll call you will get breakfast. When you finish eating breakfast you will work in the program that has been assigned to you. This could be working in the kitchen, laundry, or some sort of manufacturing job. While this may seem tedious, it may help you when you leave jail, as you are gaining experience in a certain field of work. Other inmates go to school, while some take part in mandated treatment programs. After lunch, there will be another roll call, then back to work. Your evening will be spent either in your cell or a common room. During this time dinner is served and you will be expected to take a shower. After another roll call, it’s lights out. Even though you will be confined to your cell, there may be enough light to read or write letters. Then again, most inmates welcome lights out, and try to get as much sleep as they can.
Most people are frightened at the idea of jail because they don’t know what to expect. If you have spent any time in Flagler County Jail, your experiences would be welcomed, if it can help another person to deal with it.
When incarcerated, all inmates are expected to wear the Flagler County Jail uniform. This is normally a jumpsuit or scrubs. Of note to anyone visiting an inmate – you must be properly dressed. Any clothing considered inappropriate will not be permitted.
How To Send Money to an Inmate
You will have your own ‘bank account’ while in jail. This money is used to purchase items from the Commissary. Family and friends can deposit money into this account for you, and any money you earn while in prison will also be deposited into your account. Outside money can be paid in to your account via a money order, cash or check. If someone sends a check or money order, make sure that they write your inmate ID on it. The maximum amount you are allowed in your account is $290 per month.
The process for sending funds to inmates at Flagler County Jail could change, so we suggest that you double check the official website before you send money to an inmate.
The commissary is the jail store. You can purchase a number of things here, such as toiletries, snacks and writing supplies. Bear in mind that you will probably want to use the commissary daily, and any infractions will get that privilege taken away from you.
If you are on any type of prescription medication, you will be allowed to continue taking it while in jail. When you are first processed, you will be asked what medication you take. You will then be referred to the jail nurse or doctor who will be in charge of monitoring your health and prescribing your medication.
You will get three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. As expected, they are very basic, but healthy. A typical breakfast might be cereal, toast, coffee and fruit. Lunch might be spaghetti, salad, bread and milk. Dinner could be chicken casserole, rice, vegetables, dessert and milk. Contrary to popular belief, prison food has greatly improved over the years, and you might find that it’s not much different from what you would eat at home.
Pods / The Yard
The jail is designed in a ‘pod’ layout, with self-contained housing arranged around an outdoor yard. Each pod has a central control station and a common room, and the inmates take turns in using the yard. The jail is designed this way to keep certain inmates together, and others away from the general population.
As with life in general, gangs are a part of prison life. Obviously it is best to avoid becoming a part of this environment as it will only lead to trouble. When you first enter prison, you might find yourself being ‘primed’ to join a gang, or worse, you might get their attention in a negative way. The best thing to do is keep your head down and don’t get involved.
