Located in the heart of Southern California, Menifee lies between Murrietta, CA and Temecula, CA. Once the heart of farming efforts in the region, Menifee also saw some mining activity after a significant quartz discovery was made by Luther Menifee Wilson, in the 1880s.
For many years, the community of Menifee was simply a small, rural community with an economy focused on farming. The area produced citrus, avocados, and vegetables. Some agricultural industry is still alive in Menifee. The City of Menifee is a part of the San Jacinto/Temecula Valley Agricultural District, which produced more than $138 million in agricultural products in 2010. The four largest crops in the district were Grapefruit, avocados, nursery stock, and turf.
While some farming is still happening in Menifee, the majority of the city has turned from its rural lifestyle and embraced a more urban way of life. The need for affordable housing in Riverside, Orange County, San Bernardino, and LA forced residents to seek homes within commuting distance. The farmland in Menifee, like many communities in Southern California, gave way to housing developments and master-planned communities.
Sun City in Menifee
In the 1960s, Del Webb, a contractor from Pheonix, AZ, began to develop his vision, Sun City, in what would become Menifee. Sun City was envisioned as an active retirement community that would attract retirees from San Diego, Los Angeles, and other large cities in Southern California. Sun City, CA was modeled after Webb’s other development in Pheonix, AZ that went by the same name. The mixed-use development now forms the central portion of Menifee and contains a mix of residential and commercial uses.
The City of Menifee
The development of Sun City was the beginning of what would become the City of Menifee. However, growth was slow, due to the lack of local occupations. As overcrowding in Southern California cities like San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles forced residents to seek more affordable housing within commuting distance, the Menifee area grew in population. In 2008, the approximately 77,000 residents of Menifee voted to incorporate as a city. Menifee, CA was born.
Law Enforcement in Menifee, CA
Before the area was incorporated as the City of Menifee, residents were served by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. After incorporation, the new city continued to contract with the County Sheriff for their peacekeeping services. According to the Menifee Police Department website, the department works “with the community and allied agencies to provide progressive, innovative, and efficient public safety.”

How Much is Bail in Menifee?
Bail is an amount of money, held by the court, to ensure that a defendant will appear for hearings and trial proceedings. Bail in Menifee is set by the Superior Court in Riverside County. The bail schedule can be located online and should be posted at every booking facility in the county.
To determine the amount of bail that will be required, you follow several steps, using the Riverside County Bail Schedule.
Felony Bail in Menifee
- Find the charge that carries the steepest punishments and locate the bail amount for that charge.
- Check the “Special Bail Section” to see if there is a larger amount that could apply. You'll have to use the larger amount if it applies.
- Add bail for all enhancements of the original charge. Enhancements are special circumstances or additional charges that are a part of the original charge.

Bail Bonds in Menifee
The state of California requires that all bail bond companies charge 10% of the total amount of bail, in order to post bond for a defendant. That means that if the bail is $20,000, the bail bondsman is required to charge $2,000 to post a bond in place of the bail. While this may still seem like a lot of money, it's far less than having to pay the entire amount. The rates the law requires for Federal and Immigration Bonds can be as high as 15 – 20%. But, all of these rates are set by statute, and all bail bond companies are required to charge the same amount.
California law allows for a discounted rate on bail bonds if the defendant retains a private attorney and pays the premium in full within 72 hours. These discounts are allowed for government union workers, members of the military, and AARP members. These discounts are determined by the surety company that is writing the bonds for the bail bond company.

Bail Bonds Payment Plans
If you can’t afford the full cost of bail (and most people can’t) then a bail bond agent can be your very best friend. Bail bond companies post a bond with the court in place of bail, taking responsibility for the defendant and promising that if the defendant fails to appear for hearings or proceedings, then the bail bond company will pay the whole amount of bail instead. The fee for this service is typically 10% of the total cost of bail, allowing a defendant to get out of jail for pennies on the dollar.
However, there are times when even 10% of the total cost of bail is more money than a defendant or their family can comfortably come up with. In these cases, Justice Bail Bonds will work with you to design a payment plan that gets your loved one out of jail and back home, while making payments toward the cost of the bail bond. Call (951) 445-4155 today to discuss your situation with a bail bond professional at Justice Bail Bonds.
