Paying Fines and Bonding Procedures

* Cash Bonds - Cash Bonds can be done by family or friends who have the ability to supply the total amount of a particular inmates bond. This can be done by cash, money order or cashier’s check.  Cash accepted for bonds shall be the exact amount.
An additional $15.00 fee is required by the state on the first and second bonds posted on an inmate per jailing, with the maximum of $30.00 per jailing. Class “C” bonds DO NOT carry these charges.  If applicable the courts will refund any money that was not designated to pay fees or fines accrued from the offense.

* Surety Bonds - Surety Bonds are posted by bonding agencies. Family or friends may deal directly with a bonding agent, then that agency will charge you a fee for them to assume the liability of the defendant to make his or her appearance in the desired court of which the charges are pending. The same state fees still apply when posting a surety bond.

* Paying Fines - Fines may be paid out of the inmate’s money account that was created during the booking process if adequate funds are available. Family or friends may pay fines at the jail window by having the exact cash amount, money order or cashier’s check.

Visitation Policy Effective 3/11/2021

This is a temporary visitation policy and will be in effect until it is deemed safe to resume visits with the previous visitation policy.

Visitation will be held on Tuesday and Sunday.  Each inmate will be allowed two in-person visits per week, with no more than one visit each day.  Each in-person visit will be 20 minutes in length. There can be no more than two people visiting an inmate at a time.  Two inmates will be allowed into the visitation room at a time.  There will be a new group put into visitation every thirty minutes.  The first male group will go in at 0800 and the last male group will go in at 1530. There will not be any visitation groups between 1200 and 1300. The first female group will go in at 1600 and the last female group will be in at 1730. 

Individuals wishing to visit an inmate will have to call the jail and schedule a visit time no later than 6:00 PM the day before the visit. An individual will only be able to sign up for the next visitation date.

When an individual signs up for a visitation time they will have to give the name of the inmate that they want to visit as well as the name of both visitors that will be visiting the inmate.  On the set date and time of the visit, the visitors will go to the jail lobby window, 5 minutes before the visit is set to start, and show a valid picture ID.  The only people that will be allowed to visit are the people whose names were previously given when the pre-sign up was done by phone.  The visitation time starts at the scheduled time, no exceptions.  If the scheduled time is missed it will not be rescheduled.
