Bonding Information

If you would like to help an inmate post bond you have to know if the bond is a surety bond or a cash bond. A surety bond will allow you to use the services of a Bail Bondsman to post the bond for a monetary fee. A cash bond requires that the entire bond amount be paid in cash only. Cashier checks and money orders will be accepted for a cash bond as well.

If the bond is a surety bond or cash bond you have the choice of using the services of the bondsman or paying the entire bond in cash.

A $10.00 Sheriff's Bond fee is attached to each bond. This must be paid separate from the money for the bond charge and must be paid with exact change.

(Example: A person is charged with a DUI. The bond is a surety or cash bond in the amount of $500.00. The bond can be paid in cash, $500.00, or go through a bondsman, for the DUI and an additional $10.00 for the Sheriffs Bond fee.)
