What Does RTOA Mean When Someone is Released From Custody?

In Riverside California, when you are released from custody, what do the initials RTOA mean? Is it "being releases to another agency" maybe?

That would be ROTA...
It means Release for Transportation to Outside Agency.

Safest thing would be to ask the attorney, bail bondsman, or the desk sergeant to be absolutely sure. RTOA usually means Release To Other Agency, and indicates a requirement to make regular reports to a parole or probation officer but could also mean the prisoner is being released to a half-way house or rehab treatment facility.

Failure to comply with the terms of the release can result in some rather severe penalties include a warrant being issued for a return to custody. Better find out for sure what the terms mean so that the released person can keep him/herself out of more trouble.
