  • Sheriff Banner 671x92
  • Bond Information

     

    Please call the jail information line at 303-271-5444 to learn which type of bond is required for a particular individual.

    A bond, designed to assure an individual's appearance in court, is set according to a court-approved schedule. The amount of the bond is what it will take to release an individual from jail.

    The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office charges a $10 filing fee (cash only) for each bond, in addition to any municipal and county bond fees.

    Bond types are as follows:

    • Cash Bond
      Requires the full amount of bond in cash, which the court will return when court appearances are completed.
    • Property Bond
      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 303-271-6237 or 303-271-6145.
    • Surety Bond
      Bond may be posted through the service of any state-licensed bondsman, who may require a co-signer and/or collateral to secure the bond. Staff members will not recommend a bondsman.
    • Personal Recognizance Bond
      The judge may grant a personal recognizance (PR) bond. This is a signature bond involving no money or property as long as the individual appears at all future court dates. Individuals will be released on their own signature, which acts as a promise to appear in court.
    • PR Bond with Co-signer
      The judge may also grant a PR bond with a co-signer. The individual must find someone who meets the co-signer requirements and who is willing to sign the bond. The individual and the co-signer are responsible for the amount of money for the bond.
