  1. What does absentee booked mean?

      An excellent question! When a subject is taken into custody by police, certain paperwork needs to be processed, but the subject doesn’t necessarily need to be physically brought into the local police facility (in this case, the Cypress Police Department) to process the paperwork. Some of these things can be done by police officers from their vehicles, allowing the officer to then transport the subject directly to the County Jail. When this is done, it is referred to as “absentee booking.”

      Thank you for reading Orange County Breeze!
