Bail, Bond and Release Information
Bail is money provided to the court as a promise to appear in court, whether the individual was recently arrested or has an active warrant. In lieu of posting bail (cash), an individual may choose to go through a bonding agency. Bond is money or property secured as a promise to appear in court. The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office cannot recommend a specific bonding agency.
Posting bail/bond allows an individual to remain out-of-custody until his or her court date.
- Bail/bond can be paid at the Adult Detention Center.
- Bail is accepted at the Adult Detention Center 24-hour lobby window.
- Only cash for the exact amount of the bail is accepted.
- Credit cards, checks, or money orders are not accepted.
