People arrested by NYPD are taken first to the precinct house where the arrest occurred. In most cases, within 4 to 6 hours they are taken to Central Booking (telephone (718) 935-9249) for processing (in a very few cases for minor arrests of people who have good ID, they are issued a Desk Appearance Ticket and released from the precinct house, and will appear before a judge at a later date). Once all the paperwork and processing is completed at Central Booking (which is in the basement of the Criminal Court Building), they are held for arraignment, which is an appearance before a judge. This arraignment is probably the first time you will be able to see the arrestee. The police are permitted, but not required, to let you see somebody at the precinct house (unless the arrestee is under the age of 16).

Arraignment courts operate 7 days a week, 365 days a year, in two shifts, 8AM-5PM and 5PM-1AM.

What to do if a friend or loved-one is arrested:
First, call Central Booking (in Brooklyn the phone number is 718-935-9249) and ask for that person's Arrest Number.

Then call the Criminal Court Arraignment Clerk (in Brooklyn the phone number is (718) 643-5675) and find out when and where the person will be arraigned. If there is no Arrest Number for the person, call the court clerk and tell them that and they'll help you locate the person.

If you are unable to reach the Arraignment Clerk by phone you may go directly to the courthouse (120 Schermerhorn Street) and check the list of names that is posted outside the Arraignment Clerk's office. The name usually appears on the list a few hours before the person is brought before the judge.
