When a friend or loved one has been arrested, it is often confusing how to find out where that person is being detained. Not knowing where someone is being detained, or how to contact or visit someone in custody, can cause anxiety to an already stressful situation. Our team at Bay Area Criminal Lawyers, PC would like to provide you with some helpful information for finding or locating someone arrested or detained in San Francisco.
