The Baytown Police Jail, is a municipal police jail facility in Baytown, Texas. Baytown is located in Harris County and Chambers County, and is frequently considered a suburb city of Houston, Texas. It is operated by the Baytown Police Department. The Baytown Police Department is run by the Administrative Bureau, which consists of a Chief of Police, an Administrative Assistant, and a Legal Adviser. The Administrative Bureau works together with Bureau Commanders to run the police department. Bureaus include: community services, investigations, patrol, and support services. The Support Bureau houses the jail, as well as police records, support service, and property. The Jail holds all of the arrestees in Baytown until they are released or transferred to the Harris County Jail.
When a person is arrested by the Baytown Police, he is taken to the Baytown Jail, where he is turned over to a City Jailer. The City Jailer inventories the person’s personal property and takes it into custody for safekeeping before booking the person into the jail. The booking process usually begins about 45 minutes after an arrest. Booking includes fingerprinting and photographing an incoming jail resident.
Prisoners at the Baytown Police Jail can earn “jail credit” for some offenses. If a defendant has a City of Baytown Class C misdemeanor ticket or warrant, then they may be required to pay a fine. Instead of paying the fine, a person can opt to serve jail time. The jail credit is determined by a municipal judge, in accordance with state law and in accordance with the city’s guidelines for the monetary value of the time served. Jail Credit is not applied to all arrests, only to some Class C Misdemeanors.
When looking at an inmate’s booking data, you may see that the inmate has been arrested on one of two types of warrants. An arrest warrant is a warrant where no plea has been entered. Inmates who have been arrested on an arrest warrant are able to post bond, either personally or through a bail bond company or attorney, to pay for this type of warrant. The purpose of the bond is to ensure that the person will appear in court. A capias warrant is a warrant in a situation where a plea has been entered and the prisoner did not follow through with the court’s agreement. A capias warrant can only be resolved by paying the fine in full or serving time until enough jail credit has been earned to pay off any fines.
Some inmates taken into custody by the Baytown Police may be transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody. The Baytown Jail does not have information on prisoners who have been transferred into ICE’s custody.

Generally, inmates detained at the Baytown Police Jail are there for one of two reasons: arrested on an arrest warrant or arrested, or detained on a capias warrant. The type of warrant is important because it helps determine whether or not an inmate will be allowed to post bail. An arrest warrant is a warrant that is issued before a defendant has appeared before the judge, where no plea has been entered. Defendants arrested on arrest warrants are able to post bond, either personally or through a bail bond company or attorney, to pay for this type of warrant. (This is true unless the defendant is facing charges in addition to the Class C misdemeanors charged by the city; inmates may not be eligible for bond on all charges). Under these circumstances, the bond is to help ensure that the person will appear in court. However, when a capias warrant is issued, the defendant has already been given the opportunity to post bond, but has failed to follow through with the terms of his or her bond agreement. Therefore, when a defendant is arrested on a capias warrant, he or she cannot bond out of jail. Instead, these warrants can only be resolved The purpose of the bond is to ensure that the person will appear in court. A capias warrant is a warrant in a situation where a plea has been entered and the prisoner did not follow through with the court’s agreement. A capias warrant can only be resolved by paying the fine in full or serving time until enough jail credit has been earned to pay off any fines. One way defendants can pay off their fines is by serving jail credit, which is translated into a monetary amount to pay for fines.
