WHAT TO DO FIRST AND WHERE TO GO:

Police Divisions are coded to particular courthouses. For example 11 Division would take an accused to Old City Hall, as the courtroom for bail there starts with a 1. For example, the courtroom for 11 Division would be at Old City Hall courtroom 101. Similarly, the courtroom for 32 Division would be 306 at 1000 Finch Street West courthouse. Here is a list of courthouses and their corresponding courtrooms.

So, for example, if someone you know has been arrested by 22 Division, you would look at the chart above and find a courtroom commencing in a “2”. In this case we see that courtroom 206 at 2201 Finch Avenue West is the courtroom where you would go.

All federal and drug charges in the GTA usually go to Old City Hall, courtroom 103 with the exception of Newmarket, Brampton and Oshawa.

Once you have figured out the Police Division, the Courthouse and the Courtroom, you need to discover when the bail hearing is scheduled for. The Police are required to bring the accused before a Justice of the Peace within 24 hours of arrest. Retaining a lawyer at this point is usually good practice. A lawyer will be able to contact police and find out what the charges are, where the accused is going and when.
