Make Your Holidays Happier and Safer

Santa Ana Bail Bond Store is here to make sure that your are represented properly.

Every year, as the holiday season looms into view, ​family gatherings and other social events​ start filling the slots of our calendars. ​What should be a time of celebration can very easily give rise to increased pressures​.​ Some tend to overeat, some overspend, some bury themselves in work or shy away from social functions, and for some, it becomes an excuse for increased drinking.​ ​Holidays can bring about elevated stress levels for so many, ​due to the ​ever-increasing expense of purchasing presents, preparing for the arrival of company​, keeping up with traditions,​and ​the extra responsibilities that the season brings; There is no question that ​the holiday season is just as tense and hectic as it is cheerful.

​It is not surprising that the holiday season is one of the most dangerous times of the year for alcohol related accidents and deaths.

​Hand in hand with the increased number of parties and social gatherings comes more opportunities and excuses to imbibe. Some holiday drinkers have a lower alcohol tolerance because they do​ ​n​ot drink often. Consequently, many times they underestimate their level of impairment and are more prone to drive when they should​ not​. When ​tested (and eventually arrested) for drunk driving, they often have a relatively low blood alcohol content but are very intoxicated.


How To Avoid Alcohol-Related Problems this Holiday

Santa Ana Bail Bond Store Public Safety

Make your holidays happier and safer by following these five simple tips for consuming alcohol in moderation throughout the season:

  • Just say no – Resist the pressure to drink or serve alcohol at every social event. Just because it’s there doesn’t mean you have to drink it.
  • Don’t feel like you have to drink just because your host offers it to you — it’s not rude to choose a non-alcoholic beverage instead.
  • If you are hosting the event and plan to serve alcohol, also offer nonalcoholic beverages as well. Make sure your guest feel as comfortable choosing nonalcoholic beverages as they would choosing alcohol. You can do this by putting nonalcoholic drinks in a prominent, easily accessible place and asking guests what they’d like to drink, instead of pointing them to the bar or handing them an alcoholic drink on their arrival.
  • Have a designated a driver selected before going out. Most of us hear this suggestion all the time, we read it all the time, we see it in commercials – it’s the easiest way to get home safely – yet many people totally ignore this one simple step.
  • Decide how many drinks you will have, and what type ahead of time – then stick to your plan.

Remember the reason for the holidays, and enjoy spending time with your family and friends. The choice to drink is yours. The choice to drink and drive is yours. The responsibility for any consequences resulting from your drinking and driving are yours as well!

Driving while Texting Six Times More Dangerous than Driving while Drunk

santa-ana-bailbonds

Driving a vehicle while texting is six times more dangerous than driving while intoxicated according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The federal agency reports that sending or receiving a text takes a driver’s eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent — when traveling at 55 mph – of driving the length of an entire football field while blindfolded.

Texting in cars and trucks causes over 3,000 deaths and 330,000 injuries per year, according to a Harvard Center for Risk Analysis study.

Texting while driving a vehicle has now replaced drinking while driving as the leading cause of accidents and deaths of teenage drivers. Texting in traffic isn’t simply a problem among teens and 47% of adults admit that they text while driving. Texting drivers are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash than non-texting drivers.

Fortunately, there’s also good news. A survey conducted by NHTSA found that 90% of drivers support laws to ban texting while driving. A survey reported by Nationwide Insurance found that 80% of drivers support some type of cell phone usage restrictions. The majority of respondents say they are supportive of laws restricting any type of cell phone use while driving; 80% support a ban on text messaging while driving; 80% support a ban on e-mailing while driving; and almost 75% believe that restrictions should apply to all drivers, not just specific groups such as teens.

The client and their family get to stay together and do not have to worry about one another. When the family bails their loved one out of jail, they know that the person is safe.

No one ever wants to go to jail, and with good reason. This is mainly due to the fact that people don’t feel safe in a prison. A prison is place filled with a large number of convicted criminals, some of whom have committed dangerous crimes to get themselves locked up. Just because a criminal is locked up does not mean they will stop committing crimes.

Inmates are always committing crimes within the prison walls and those crimes can be deadly. This is not surprising though. The average Californian jail holds anywhere from 4 to 5 thousand inmates. Jails are concentrated centers of violence and in today’s economy there just aren’t enough jailors to keep a prison safe.

Some people just aren’t ready to hear this, but as stated earlier, it’s a sad truth. The thing to do if this happens is to have patience. The agents at Santa Ana Bail Bond Store are doing everything in their power to bail your loved one out as quickly as they can. They’re on your side.

The Right Way To Bail Is With Santa Ana Bail Bond Store

santa ana bail bonds

Getting arrested can be extremely scary and nerve racking. Whether it’s yourself or someone you know, the result is the same and you can find yourself lost and alone in a matter of seconds. Try to keep these three things in mind should you ever find yourself in the unfortunate position of being arrested.

The most important thing to do is keep calm. Panic is the enemy of clear thinking and clear thinking will help you make good decisions. Keeping calm will help you stay on the good side of the law enforcement officers who are arresting you, which is very beneficial to you.

Secondly you need to be cooperative. The arresting officers are just doing their job, you can make it easier by listening to them and following orders. Just think of how grateful you are to people who make your job easier, the same is true for law enforcement agents. They will appreciate your cooperation and can be nicer to you for making their job easier.

The third and equally important thing to do is make your one call count. This is more complicated than most think it is. Contrary to popular belief, there is no law that guarantees you a phone call. Your one phone call is a privilege that must be earned. You earn it by being cooperative. If you get your phone call, be sure to call someone who is responsible and capable of handling what follows.

You want to make sure that the person you call either has, or has the capability to gather enough money for your bail. Make sure whoever you call is responsible and can be trusted in this kind of stressful situation.

Santa Ana Bail Bond Store

Keep all of these things in mind in case you ever get arrested but hopefully you never need any of this. In the off chance you do, call Santa Ana Bail Bond Store at 1-714-973-2245 and our bail agents will help you get out of jail as fast as possible.

The vast majority of our bonds are approved with no collateral and perfect credit is not required. Most people don’t have perfect credit so why do most bonding companies require great credit?

Watchdog: Overtime Spike Boosts Court Paychecks

oc-court2

BY KEEGAN KYLE / STAFF WRITER

The Orange County Superior Court boosted employee paychecks with more overtime last year than almost the rest of the California court system combined, according to a Register analysis of state payroll data.

Although most Superior Courts, including the similar-sized Riverside County court, paid less than $100,000 in overtime last year, the Orange County court spent about $962,000.

Only Los Angeles County paid more overtime than Orange County with $1.6 million. But it also spread that cash across nearly twice as many employees. Los Angeles is a bigger, busier court.

One Orange County employee – whose salary as a programmer was about $100,000 – received $40,000 in overtime alone. It was the most of any Superior Court employee in the state. Two other locals each received more than $19,000.

Orange County Superior Court officials said the spike in overtime last year was driven by new limits on storing cash in reserves. Rather than return excess cash to the state, the court opted to spend it on one-time projects.

The projects included digitizing thousands of criminal court documents and destroying a backlog of old exhibits. Court administrators don’t know exactly how much the two projects cost but expect both will save millions in the long run.

“Our court and the public will benefit for years to come from the overtime hours staff have worked to implement these innovative projects,” spokeswoman Gwen Vieau said.

Court CEO Alan Carlson said destroying old exhibits will make it easier to keep track of records and free up more storage space for new files. The court had 440,000 exhibits in storage in December 2012 – about twice as many as today.

Carlson said he expects the Orange County Superior Court will spend less on overtime next year unless there are similar opportunities for one-time projects with long-term savings. Before last year, the court’s annual expenses typically included less than $400,000 in overtime.

Court employees completed the projects by working overtime shifts on nights and weekends. Court officials said they couldn’t afford to take away employees from their normal duties and hiring others didn’t make financial sense.

Hiring new employees or seeking a contractor for the projects could have added recruitment and training costs and months of delay, Carlson said. By paying existing employees in overtime, the work could begin immediately.

Plus, Vieau said, court employees haven’t received raises in a number of years. Like other government agencies reeling from the recession, the state’s trial court system has seen budgets shrink, positions vanish and wages stagnant.

Orange County Bail Bond Store

Carlson said supervisors monitor how overtime is distributed and the risk of employees getting burned out. There are no limits on how much overtime a single employee can work, he said, because it might “thwart activities critical to the operation of the court.”

“There may be only a few staff with the skills and abilities needed to accomplish a particular task who could work the overtime needed,” Carlson said. “Work units have overtime budgets which cannot be exceeded without management approval. Thus, there is close and continuous justification and oversight of overtime use.”

Application developers, technicians and clerks received most of the overtime paid to Orange County Superior Court employees last year. State data show 24 employees each received more than $5,000 in overtime, including two interpreters, a detention release officer and an air-conditioning mechanic.

Timing was a factor in spending the money. Like other Superior Courts across the state, Orange County administrators faced a fiscal cliff of sorts on July 1, 2014. A new limit on storing cash in reserves took effect. Courts had to either spend excess funding or give it back to the state.

Historically, the courts had no cap on reserves. If the Orange County Superior Court had leftover state funding at the end of the budget year, it could roll that cash into a reserve for the following year’s budget. By 2012, the courts had accumulated more than $500 million in reserves, according to estimates by the nonpartian Legislative Analyst’s Office.

Then, two years ago, lawmakers proposed capping reserves in an attempt to ease the immediate pain of budget cuts. The state slashed court funding by $150 million and prohibited individual courts from keeping more than 1 percent of annual expenses in reserves.

In theory, the proposal was arranged so the budget cuts would be offset by courts tapping their reserves. If a court didn’t spend down its reserves to 1 percent by July 1, cash exceeding the limit would return to state coffers.

For example, the Orange County Superior Court had about $38.6 million stored in reserves in 2012 and needed to drop that amount to $2.1 million under the new limits. Other courts across the state opted to tap reserves as well.

“A lot of courts were faced with that – that they would have to spend down their reserves,” said Teresa Ruano, a spokeswoman for the California Judicial Council. “If you have in mind a long-term project, now is a good time.”

During budget discussions earlier this year, the Legislative Analyst’s Office aired concerns that limiting reserves may reduce incentives to operate more efficiently because individual courts “will be unable to benefit directly from the savings created.”

The office recommended lawmakers consider increasing the cap on reserves so courts would have more financial breathing room, but that idea hasn’t gained traction. Ruano said court officials are continuing to discuss easing the cap with lawmakers.

The state Controller’s Office recently released the data online. It includes compensation per court employee but does not include names.

Top 10 Southern California Beaches by Santa Ana Bail Bond Store

We share this information in the hopes that it will take some stress out of the lives of friends and families who are looking for a place to live in San Diego, Ocean Beach, Santa Ana, Anaheim, Tustin, Seal Beach, Laguna Niguel, and the surrounding areas of Orange County, San Diego and Los Angeles County. Santa Ana Bail Bond Store would like to remind you to always obey the law, and try to stay away from any situation that could get you in trouble with the law.

Drive down the Southern California coast, and visit the best beaches in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego.

Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach

Laguna is one of Orange County’s most fashionable towns, as well as one of the most culturally rich, but the beach is a big draw, too. The water at Laguna is generally clean and calm, though occasionally the Pacific tends to be cool with strong tides. Clean, white and warm, Laguna’s sands are perfect for strolling, volleyball matches or simply unwinding on a blanket.

Coronado Beach

Coronado Beach

For well over a century, Coronado’s beaches have been its fortune, namely the seaside in front of the glamorous Hotel Del Coronado open since 1888. For non-hotel guests, the main beach, Coronado Central Beach, stretches 1.5 miles behind the great houses along Ocean Boulevard. Swimmers, bodysurfers, boogie boarders, sand sculptors, tide poolers and, from December through February, whale watchers all take to the sand and sea. North Beach attracts surfers in the morning, and at the extreme north is Dog Beach, where leashless canines can frolic in the surf.

El Matador Beach

El Matador Beach

If you’ve come to El Matador to savor the beach rather than get sucked into the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, then you’re in luck — there’s blissfully little else to do here other than bask on Malibu’s most glorious stretch of beach. The best way to enjoy your time is to check the tide schedule, pack a picnic lunch or sunset dinner, grab a blanket, and trek down to one of El Matador’s hidden nooks and coves to enjoy the incredibly romantic atmosphere.

Venice Beach

Venice Beach

No beach in the world is like Venice Beach. Sure, other California beaches have sand, surf and sunshine. But they do not have a 3-ring urban street circus, complete with philosophizing artists, trash-talking hoopsters, preening weightlifters, barefoot sand sculptors and more. All of this frenetic activity happens on Ocean Front Walk, a 3/4-mile concrete boardwalk with stores, fast-food spots, flea markets and artists.

Newport Beach

Newport Beach

Trendsetters, jet-setters, and beach lovers in the know have been taking advantage of Newport Beach’s coastal charms for decades. There’s the ritzy harbor most folks will only dream of docking a yacht in; beachside “bungalows” worth many, many millions; a shopping district so chic, Rodeo Drive looks discounted; and, oh yes, an utterly magnificent stretch of beach. This wide bed of sand, silky and blonde, rolls south from Newport Pier to Balboa Pier, and plays host to diehard surfers, serious sunbathers, trendy 20-somethings and families. Sitting by a weathered pier, gazing past wooden lifeguard stands toward a fiery sunset, one can’t help but wax nostalgic for days when Beach Boys records and long boards were all the rage.

Hermosa Beach

Hermosa Beach

Hermosa Beach takes pride in its abundance of outdoor beach activities, which include surfing, swimming, paddleball, sunbathing and, of course, volleyball — there always seems to be intense serving and spiking action on the 1.5-mile stretch of sand. By day, the Strand, a paved boardwalk that borders the beach, is a thoroughfare for bikers, bladers, joggers and strollers. At night, the Strand is a great people-watching spot as crowds fill the restaurants and bars.

La Jolla Cove

La Jolla Cove

With its small crescent of sand tucked between towering sandstone cliffs, La Jolla Cove is one of the smallest but also the most photographed beaches along the Southern California coastline. And things are just as lovely below the surface at this is popular spot for scuba-diving and snorkeling, thanks to visibility that extends up to 30 feet and wildlife protected by the San Diego La Jolla Underwater Park Ecological Reserve.

Catalina Island

Catalina Island

Located 22 miles off the Southern California coast, Catalina Island is known for its myriad of outdoor activities like snorkeling, scuba, horseback-riding, kayaking and hiking. After an active day, stroll around the quaint social center of the island at Avalon for window-shopping, gallery-hopping and a gourmet meal. Bring a camera as photo opportunities present themselves at almost every turn; shutterbugs should be on the lookout for grazing buffalo. Boats depart from Newport Beach, Long Beach, San Pedro and Dana Point; for jet-setters who don’t want to waste any time traveling, helicopter trips are also a possibility.

Crystal Cove State Park

Crystal Cove State Park

A secluded beach stretching some 3.5 miles, an official “underwater park” teeming with reefs and 2,000-plus wooded acres for exploring make Crystal Cove State Park a remarkable escape from the crowds and bustle of Newport Harbor. Tide pools and coves delight visitors to the beach year-round, though rangers advise exploration of these during winter, when lower tides present clearer views of the aquatic life. Carved into the park’s ridges and canyons are more than 23 miles of mountain-biking, horseback-riding and hiking trails, many of which feature steep, rocky climbs.

Santa Monica Beach

Santa Monica Beach

There’s never a shortage of seaside fun at Santa Monica Pier where the beach meets the boardwalk in a festive display of amusement park rides, aquarium wonders and festival food. It’s free to stroll the historic boardwalk and peruse the goods, and even if you don’t go for thrill rides, there’s no charge for the show-stopping sunset at the end of each day.

Preliminary Statistics Show Crime Rates Shift In Orange County

orange-county-sheriff

While property crimes reportedly increased in most big Orange County cities in 2012, violent crimes are down, according to preliminary statistics released Monday.

Irvine ranked among the safest big Orange County cities, with 110 reported violent crimes in 2012, which is down from 120 in 2011, according to figures.

Among U.S. cities that have a population of 100,000 or more, Irvine ranked as the safest in terms of per capita crime, according to city officials.

“Public safety is the city’s most important strategic priority,” Irvine Mayor Steven Choi said. “So, each year, this very high mark is important to us. Because in the commitment of a city to it’s citizens, everything flows from public safety. I am proud of our police department, our other staff, and a community that helps each other. I am very happy that 2012 marked the lowest per capita violent crime rate in Irvine’s history.”
Irvine, despite a population of about 217,500, had only two murders last year. The city had the same number in 2011.

orange-county-sheriff-department

Eight rapes were reported, which is down from 11 in 2011.

Robberies totaled 29, down from 40 in 2011.

However, aggravated assaults did rise. Seventy-one were reported in 2012, which is up 67 from 2011.

In Santa Ana, violent crimes increased from 1,303 in 2011 to 1,334 in 2012, but murders were down from 11 to 13.

Property crimes in Santa Ana, who has a population of about 332,500, went up from 6,575 to 7,389.

An increase in daytime break-ins through open windows was noted by crime analysts in Santa Ana, according to Cpl. Anthony Bertagna.

“We’re aware of the slight uptick, mainly in auto thefts and residential burglaries, so we’ve been working diligently with neighborhood watch and community groups,” Bertagna said.

Bertagna added that police will be launching a warm-weather public campaign that will urge residents to lock windows and doors.

“We’re also going to be doing a video to post on Facebook and other things,” Bertagna said.
Crimes in the city of Orange also saw a drop over recent years.

“One of the many things we do here at OPD is we constantly examine how we deliver police services, which involves strategic ways of impacting crime,” Sgt. Fred Lopez of Orange said. “Our goal is to stay ahead of crime trends before they occur, based on past results. Waiting to combat a crime trend once it happens is too late in many instances. Often times, crime trends are short in duration. Therefore, as a forward thinking agency, we look for ways to attack the problem before it happens.”

Arsons in Orange increased from nine to 26 in 2012.

In Anaheim, with a population of 244,526, violent crimes stayed relatively the same, with 1,281 in 2011 to 1,279 in 2012.

While the city had 15 reported murder in both 2011 and 2012, forcible rapes decreased from 105 to 82.
Property crimes in Anaheim did increase from 8,493 to 10,070 in 2012.

Meanwhile, in Costa Mesa, violent crimes rose from 231 to 254 last year. Property crimes increased from 3,534 to 4,079 last year.

In Fullerton, violent crimes jumped from 306 in 2011 to 452 in 2012, yet the city did not report any murders. Property crimes increase from 3,550 to 3,937 in 2012.

In Garden Grove, violent crimes decreased from 449 to 439, and the city reported one murder last year. However, property crimes increased from 3,387 to 4,017.

In Huntington Beach, violent crimes fell from 403 to 313 last year, while the city reported three murders; down one from 2011.
