Family members may pick up items of housed inmates seven days a week, 24 hours a day, but they must bring a photo ID. 

Civilian clothing for inmates going to court (jury trial only) is accepted at the Sheriff’s Office between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. on the morning the trial is to begin. Once a court case has ended the clothing must be picked up as soon as possible from the Sheriff’s Office.

Posting Bail/Bond

There are 4 types of Bail/Bonds that can be posted to get a family member, friend or loved one out of the Coosa County Jail -- Cash Bond, Professional Bonding Company, Property Bond, and Appeal Bond. 

Cash Bond – If you wish to post a Cash Bond, you must go to the Circuit Clerk's Office. They are open Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm. You must place a deposit in the entire amount of the bond, and the Circuit Clerk will issue a receipt. When your inmate gets a disposition on their case, the money will either be returned to you or placed against any accrued fines. 

Professional Bonding Company – Another option is to hire a Professional Bonding Service to post the Bail/Bond. The bond company must have current, valid business licenses that are required to bond in Coosa County. They may charge a fee and ask for collateral. 

Property Bond – You may place your property as collateral in the form of a property bond. These are accepted at the Coosa County Sheriff’s Office Monday through Friday from 8am till 4pm. There are various rules that apply for a property bond to be accepted.

Property owners must understand that by placing their property on a Bail/Bond, they are guaranteeing the Court that the defendant will appear at the appropriate time. Failure to appear may result in a lien being placed against your property for the amount of the bond. 

Appeal Bond – After being sentenced, if the defendant does not agree with the Judge's final ruling they have 14 days in which to file for an appeal bond. To file for an appeal bond the defendant must make a request to the Circuit Clerk. The Judge with jurisdiction over the criminal case will set a bond and the family members may post it at the Circuit Clerk's Office.

When posting a bond in any of the forms listed above, you must have a money order or cashier’s check made payable to the Coosa County Circuit Clerk in the amount of $35.00 for each charge that has arisen from different incidents.

Anyone posting a bond must understand that by signing the paperwork, you are swearing that all information is accurate. If the information is later found to be false, you may be held accountable.
