How to determine if someone you know is in jail?
If you believe a friend or family member may be in our jail you may call our Booking Unit at 772-220-7220.

When you speak to our booking unit, they can verify if a person is being held here, what they're charged with and their bond amount.  They can also advise you of their scheduled court date.  Please remember, cases may go to court faster than the scheduled date or may be delayed. Changes in status to court cases are not controlled by our Staff.

Bond Procedures
Persons arrested and in custody may be released from the jail if a bond has been set for their charges.  Calling our Booking Unit at 772-220-7220 will enable you to determine the charge and bond amount.  You may post a cash or surety bond.

Cash bonds- When paying a cash bond, please be advised it must be presented in the form of cash, money order or cashier check and brought directly to the jail lobby.  (If you bring cash, it must be the exact amount).  After a deputy receives the proper bond amount, you will be given a Cash Bond Receipt.  The release process will be completed.  PLEASE BE ADVISED, ALL CASH BONDS ARE SUBMITTED TO THE CLERK OF THE COURT THE FOLLOWING BUSINESS DAY.

Surety bonds- Must be made through a private business that is licensed by the Insurance Commissioner of the State of Florida.  The bail bond agent guarantees the amount of the bond or the individual’s appearance in court.  A list of bail bond companies is located in our booking area for the arrestee, and in the lobby for family and friends.  Another source of information is the yellow pages.  You are responsible for the conditions, fees and agreements with the Bail Bondsman.  The deputies working for the Sheriff’s Office cannot and will not recommend a Bail Bond Agency.  Once the bonds arrive at this facility, the release process will begin.
