Inmate Bond

Bond amounts are determined by the court. There is a $5 fee on criminal case bonds.  The fee does not apply to a WRIT. Once a bond has been set, the inmate may bond themselves out if they have

  • A credit card with them, or
  • Enough cash with them to cover the full amount.  

The public can post bond for someone by either:

  • Going to the lobby of the Hancock County Jail and use the Jail ATM kiosk.  Kiosk will take cash or credit card.
  • Visiting and follow instructions for bond.
