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.

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.
