Bail and Bond

How it works

In most cases, people arrested can get out of jail by bail bond set by the Court. Sometimes the arrested person will have to see a judge before they can get out.

Bail is the amount of money a judge believes will be enough to make someone come to court when they are suppose to. Bond is how the bail money is guaranteed to the Court.

Payment Methods

You must have cash, a cashier's check or money order to post the cash bond, a non-refundable $10 bond fee, and a non-refundable $30 booking fee. Cashier’s checks and money orders need to be payable to the Weld County Sheriff's Office. Tell us if you want your name on a cash bond you post so the money will be returned to you when the Court releases the bond. If the person does not go to court when they are supposed to, the Court can keep the cash. Make sure you understand the risk!

Surety bonds must be done by a bondsperson. To find a bondsperson, look in the yellow pages of a telephone book under "Bail Bonds". Bondspersons usually charge a fee depending on how much bail is needed. These fees are not refundable.

Minor Visitors

A parent or legal guardian must accompany all visitors under the age of 18. Only one adult visitor and two minor children may visit an inmate during a scheduled appointment.

Procedures

What Happens First?

New prisoners are questioned and observed right away to find out if they need immediate medical or mental health care. A telephone call is allowed as soon as possible unless the prisoner is violent.

A nurse and a counselor will talk with a new prisoner within a short time. The nurse finds out if they need to see a doctor, take prescriptions or have other medical problems. The counselor finds out if they are thinking of hurting themselves or need some other help with their mental health.

Counselors "classify" prisoners who don't get out of jail within 24 hours to find out where they should be housed. A prisoner's current charges, past history, behavior and other factors are checked so only prisoners with similar backgrounds are housed together. That helps keep everyone safe and secure. Even then, anyone who feels afraid of someone else needs to tell staff.

Mail

We encourage you to send letters to your loved one or friend at this address:

Inmate's Name
Weld County Jail
2110 O Street
Greeley, CO 80631

All mail is screened and we do not accept many things for safety and security reasons. Mail without a return address is not opened and returned to the Post Office. Some things we do not accept include packages, food, snacks, stamped envelopes, stamps, books, newspapers, magazines, items with glitter, clippings, or anything made with glue. Items not accepted will be returned. Ask the inmate what is allowed. No more than four pictures or 10 letters are allowed at one time. Postage-paid envelopes and larger envelopes may be purchased through commissary. Indigent inmates will receive one free envelope per week. Indigent inmates are defined as inmates with a balance of less than .53 on their inmate account for 30 or more consecutive days.

Inmate Money Account

A money account is opened with money on a prisoner at the time they come to jail. Money in this account is used by the inmate to pay for medical visits and buy commissary. Commissary includes things the jail does not issue like playing cards, snacks, portable radios, deodorant, etc. 

To put money in an inmate’s account you can mail a money order or make a deposit to Access SecureDeposits via a lobby kiosk, the phone, and the internet. Regardless of how Access SecureDeposits is made the fee is just $4.00. Nothing is accepted in person.

  • Money orders must be made out to the Weld County Sheriff’s Office to the address found in the mail section of this page. Make sure the inmate's name is written in the “for” or “remarks” section of the money order. Cash or personal checks are not accepted.
  • A Lobby Kiosk is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and accepts cash, debit cards, and credit cards.
  • Phone deposits are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Contact a bi-lingual Customer Service Representative at 1-866-345-1884 who accepts deposits from debit cards and credit cards.
  • Internet deposits are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The web address is www.inmatedeposits.com and accepts debit cards and credit cards.

Access SecureDeposits provides the most affordable and reliable way to deposit funds into inmate accounts. Please keep your receipt once a deposit is made. For all questions or problems concerning the kiosk, phone, or internet services contact 1-866-345-1884 Customer Support with your receipt.

Messages

Staff cannot give messages to inmates. If you have an emergency message, telephone the jail and ask for the on-duty commanders. Even emergency messages have to be verified before being given to an inmate.

Telephones

Only collect-call telephones are available to inmates. All personal telephone calls are recorded. A fee is billed to the person called for every call accepted. 
Talk time is limited to 15 minutes per call. Calls cannot be made to international numbers and will disconnect if a computer believes you are trying to forward a call to someone else or have a portable phone. 
If you accept a lot of calls, the cost will quickly add up on your phone bill. We encourage you to write letters and visit in person so you don't spend a lot of money.

You can have your telephone number blocked so it cannot be called from jail by asking the on-duty supervisor. The block will stay until you call the on-duty supervisor to have it removed.

Day to Day Activities

Inmate Life

Meeting AreaHousing units, called "Pods", are made up of several individual rooms connected to a large room. A correctional officer is working inside each housing unit 24 hours daily. Individual rooms can have one bed or more. A housing unit may hold as many as 80 inmates.

Inmates have to stay in their room or cell with the door closed or locked several times a day. This is called a "lock down" period. Even with lock downs, inmates are still outside their individual room or cell about 10 hours every day.

A nurse is always in the building and clinics with the jail physician and dentist are available several times weekly. Co-payments are charged for appointments not required by a nurse. If you have important information about an inmate's medical or mental health, call the jail and ask to speak to the medical unit.
Three nutritionally balanced meals are served every day and recreation time is scheduled several times each week. There are both indoor and outdoor gyms.

An in-house library is available. Inmates are allowed to check out up to two books each week.

All basic hygiene supplies and clothing are issued by the jail. Some inmates have to wash their own underclothing but uniforms and bedding are washed and regularly exchanged by the jail. Inmates are expected to shower at least twice weekly and may ask for a razor to shave. Haircuts may be available at cost.

Programs are offered for self-improvement. An inmate needs to talk with a counselor to find out what may be available.

A grievance procedure is available to inmates if they have a complaint or problem. Grievance procedure is described in The Inmate Handbook available in each housing unit.
