The rule of thumb is two hours for intake, two hours for release. So the inmate appears on the CCDC inmate search around two hours after they arrive at the jail and they are taken off the inmate search approximately two hours before they literally walk out the door. This is frustrating for family members and attorneys who are trying to find the person, because they do not exist (according to the system) during that period.
