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 www.jailatm.com and follow instructions for bond.
