How long does it take for a person to be released?

There is no exact time. Many factors must be considered.

Persons must be fingerprinted, photos taken, warrant checks done, processed through N.C.I.C., checked by medical etc.

The AVERAGE processing time is less than two hours. However actual release time may be 3 to 6 hours after the release is ordered.
