Determine Where They Are Being Held

being detained. Once your loved one is at the detention facility they will have the opportunity to contact you. If you have not heard from your loved one, then you should contact the law enforcement agency that arrested or is holding your loved one. Many Counties provide inmate information online.

What it can mean is that your family is forced to deal with a personal, family, social, business, employment, and financial crisis which most families have not experienced or even know how to deal with.
