2.    How do I post bail?

The bail is set by a court order. Most bails are a cash sum and only cash will be accepted. If bail is a surety, that will also be accepted. However, you are required to post a surety bond accompanied with a deed. Bail can be posted at TBRJ in the reception area 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A correctional officer will assist you by verifying required paperwork and the proper amount of bail. Please be patient with the process, particularly during periods of conflicting jail activities.

 

A $60.00 charge will be added for the bail commissioner’s fee and the commissioner will be called once you have counted out the cash for the booking officer at the window.

4.    How is inmate medication handled?

Medication for inmates can be brought to the jail as long as they are in the original prescription container. Medications will be dispensed according to the directions by the physician on the script. Medications are dispensed to the inmate during a regular scheduled medication pass. All medical issues will be reviewed by staff. Some medical issues will be forwarded to the staff physician. Any medical or dental needs outside of the facility including transportation will be arranged by the medical/correction staff.

5.    Can I leave a message for an inmate? What if it is an emergency?

The corrections staff does not deliver messages to an inmate unless it is an emergency. If you feel your message could be an emergency, you can contact our staff and give as much detailed information as possible concerning the situation. Correctional staff members are required to confirm the validity of these types of messages. Be prepared to pass on information such as name(s), funeral home, hospital, contact information, and location.
