Bond Out of Jail - Online

A Bond is a formal written agreement where a person agrees to do something (such as appear in court) or stop doing something (such as committing a crime). If the person doesn't comply with the agreement, he/she (or a "surety", also called a "bondsman") then forfeits the money paid for the Bond. The purpose of a Bond is to motivate the person to comply with the written agreement and to provide consequences if he/she doesn't. In most cases, a surety (bondsman) is involved and the Bond makes the surety responsible for the consequences of the person's behavior.

This system allows for the following bond types to be posted online:
  • Cash Bond - The defendant or another person can pay in cash via credit card the full amount of the bond to release the defendant from custody.
  • Personal Recognizance (PR) - A PR bond is a signature bond that involves no money or property as long as the defendant appears at all future court dates. The defendant's signature acts as the promise to appear in court. A judge may require additional persons to sign the bond as well, to ensure the appearance of the defendant in court.

IMPORTANT: The following bond types are currently not available in this system:
  • Professional Surety Bonds - Posting bond as a professional surety (bail bondsman) is in development.
  • Out of County Bonds (OC) - Posting bond for someone being held in Denver for a different county.
  • Civil Bonds - Failure to complete interrogatories.
