About the Orange County Booking & Release Center

Within the Orange County Corrections Department there are several detention centers including the Orange County Booking and Release Center, the Female Detention Center, Horizon Facility, Genesis Facility, Phoenix Facility, and the Whitcomb Facility for direct supervision units, the Work Release Center, and the Main Jail Facility.

The Booking and Release Center provides specific services to the community and to the Department of Corrections. It is at this facility that the booking and processing for the county occur, as well as where inmates will remain until their first appearance, but also for the release of inmates at the end of their sentence or if they are found to be innocent. Bail may be posted at this location around the clock, and inmates are admitted at any time they are surrendered by law enforcement.

This facility consists of 592 beds for the temporary housing of both male and female inmates, and its front windows that allow large amounts of light and the open space lobby is less intimidating for visitors than other facilities may be. Twelve housing units make up the housing options for the detainees, and this will be where those who are not able to be released or bonded out before their trial will remain until their first court date. There is an orientation on site, as well as housing for inmates who are working, for require special medical care, and those who require special mental health treatment, a medical clinic that includes a pharmacy as well as a x-ray and dialysis areas, and a space for ultrasounds.

Courtrooms located on the fourth floor ensure that all who have court dates will be able to attend them without requiring transport to the courthouse. With direct supervision there are staff and safety officers within each of the housing pods where they will interact with the inmates each day and provide positive social interactions.

Bonds are payable in money order, certified cheque, Western Union, or traveler cheque at the public windows in the facility at 3855 South John Young Parkway, Orlando, FL 32839. For expedited bonds it is necessary to appear with the person who is turning themselves in at the lobby between 8am and 2pm, at which time their fingerprints and photograph may be taken in the lobby, allowing for bail to be paid immediately, and they will be released without entering the rest of the facility.

All visits are currently via video visitation, and there is a visitation station, or they can be done online from home. The Video Visitation Center is found at 3000 39th Street, Orlando, Florida, 32839, and this is the center for all facilities within the county, and visits are booked by calling 407-836-8061 at least one full day in advance between the hours of 9:30am and 8:30pm. After registering for visits the first time all future visits may be scheduled online.

Along with video visits, phone calls (calls are $0.145/minute) are through the GTL program and an account is created online.

Inmates are also able to receive mail, including paperback books, when addressed appropriately and containing no additional material, blank paper or envelopes, stationary, adult content, or other additions.

A return address is mandatory, to the mailing address:

Recent Bookings & Arrests

How do I find out if someone has been arrested and booked into the Orange County Booking & Release Center?

To find out if someone you know has been recently arrested and booked into the Orange County Booking & Release Center, call the jail’s booking line at 407-836-3400.

There may be an automated method of looking them up by their name over the phone, or you may be directed to speak to someone at the jail. Sometimes the jail staff may ask you the offender’s date of birth to ensure privacy of the offender’s status.

Keep in mind that after an arrest, the information on an offender may not be publicly available for several hours.

If you don’t want to check up on an offender by calling the jail, you can also try looking up people recently booked online.

Orange County Booking & Release Center Booking Roster

What happens during booking in Orange County?

After being arrested and taken into custody, and after being read their Miranda Rights, an offender will next be transported to the local police or department or the Sheriff’s Department in Orange County for booking.

Booking is very involved and requires multiple steps in the process, however, keep in mind that most attorneys will advise that an offender remain silent and not offer any additional information about the crime they have been arrested for because anything they do say may be recorded and may very well be used against them in court.

What is the booking process like at the Orange County Booking & Release Center?

Booking includes having their photo (mugshot) and fingerprints taken, as well as being asked a lot of questions about their personal history and state of mind. If it’s a serious felony, their DNA may also be taken. They will also be checked for warrants in Orange County and other Florida and USA jurisdictions.

If the offender was arrested for a DUI offense, and has refused a breathalyzer test, they may also be forced to have blood drawn by a doctor or nurse.

It is also very likely that the offender will undergo a humiliating full body search while in the nude. This includes bending over, spreading their cheeks in the direction of an officer, and coughing. They will also be walked through a metal detector or x-ray machine, like those used at an airport.

What kind of questions are asked during booking?

The arresting jurisdiction will ask about gang affiliations, tattoos, medical conditions, prescribed medication they are taking, recreational drugs they are on or addicted to, allergies, if they are suicidal, and other relevant information that will help with determining their cell assignment and special needs.

What happens to an offender’s personal property during booking?

During the arrest and booking process an offender will also have all their personal property confiscated and held for either their release from jail, or with the offender’s approval, released to a friend or family member.

Personal property includes the clothing they are wearing, money, wallets, purses, cell phones, jewelry, body rings, earrings, watches, and even glasses if they are deemed a security risk. If they are allowed to keep their shoes or sneakers, the laces are removed.

What happens after booking?

At this point the offender will be allowed to make a free phone call to a person of their choice to notify them of their arrest, and/or arrange a bond or bail for their release.

If the offender is being detained and housed while awaiting arraignment, the Orange County Booking & Release Center will provide a jail garment and slip-on shoes, a blanket, sheets, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, and a towel.

Often, before they are dressed in the jail outfit and brought to their housing location, they will be forced to take a shower and undergo a disinfectant treatment for body and hair lice, scabies or other pests that may be residing on their person.

How long does the Orange County Booking & Release Center Booking process take?

Booking can take anywhere from an hour to 24 hours or more. It all depends on the number of people that are awaiting processing, the number of staff on duty at the time, and the behavior of the offender.

If the offender is heavily intoxicated and/or violent, the Booking Officer may decide to stick the offender in a holding cell for several hours until they become more manageable.
