Please call the jail information line at 303-621-2027 to find out the type of bond required for a particular individual.
A bond is set according to a court-approved schedule. The purpose of the bond is to assure your appearance in court. The amount of the bond is what it will take to release you from jail.
The Elbert County Sheriff's Office charges a $10 filing fee (cash only) for each bond, in addition to any municipal and county bonds fees.
Bond types are as follows:
Requires the full amount of bond in cash, which will be returned by the court, when court appearances are completed.
The equity in real property may be used to post a property bond. Property bonds must be posted at the Court Clerk's office during regular business hours. For more information please call 303-621-2131.
Bond may be posted through the service of a state licensed bondsman of your choice. The bondsman may require a co-signer and/or collateral to secure the bond. Staff members will not recommend a bondsman.
The judge may grant a personal recognizance (PR) bond. A PR bond is a signature bond that involves no money or property as long as you appear at all future court dates. You will be released on your own signature. Your signature acts as your promise to appear in court.
The Judge may also grant a PR bond with a co-signer. You must find someone willing to sign your bond that meets the co-signer requirements. You and the co-signer are responsible for the amount of money for the bond and for your return to court.
