I don't know any bonding agents, can you recommend one for me?
No, the Sheriff's Office is prohibited by Florida Statute from recommending a bonding agent. You can find a bonding agent listed in the telephone directory or they are posted next to the telephones in the detention facility and inside the public lobby.
I paid for a bond through a bonding agent a long time ago. Why hasn't the arrestee been released?
If you have a question regarding a bond, please contact your bonding agent. Many times, we do not receive the bond for several hours. Bonds are processed in the order in which they are received, every effort is made to release inmates in a timely manner.
A bond was paid before the arrestee surrendered, how long will it take for them to be released?
The answer to the previous question applies. In addition, if the arrestee turns themselves in on a warrant, they will be processed in and released the same way as those arrested under other circumstances.
The arrestee went to court and the judge released them, how long will it take for them to be released?
When a judge releases someone from custody they will be released as soon as the Sheriff's Office has been properly notified. The Clerk of the Court must provide the proper documentation before release of an inmate can be initiated. The documentation must then be delivered to the Intake / Release unit. The releases are then completed as they are received in Booking.
