Bail bonds may be posted through the services of a court approved bondsman of an inmate's choice. If a cash bond is required from another County, we must have a money order or cashier’s check. Personal checks are not accepted at anytime for any bond.
ALL local Court bonds (Municipal, Magistrate and District) must be posted at the appropriate Court if posted during regular business hours. If the inmate is bonding out after regular business hours, the bond may be posted at the Detention Center. If the inmate is being detained on a fine, it must be paid at the Court where the fine is owed.
The Chaves County Detention Center will not release an inmate without a signed release order by an authorized official. There is almost always a lapse in time between when the Judge says the inmate will be released and when the Detention Center receives the paperwork. Please call to verify the paperwork has been received before making the trip to the Detention Center to pick up an inmate.
