Bonding an inmate out of the Walker County Jail

When bonding an inmate out of the Walker County Jail, you must bring a $35 money order made payable to the "Circuit Clerk.”  This fee is required by Alabama law and is separate from any money or property required to make a cash or property bond.

Things you need to know

All prescription medication must be dropped off to the Jail Doctor.  You may do so at 5:30pm at the Night Entrance of the Walker County Jail.

The Walker County Jail and staff do not set court dates.  Please do not contact the jail regarding court dates.  You must contact the inmate and their lawyer about this matter.

To pick up an inmate's property when that inmate is still in the jail, SATURDAYS are the only day you may do so from 8am to 11am or 1pm to 3pm.  Upon release from jail any money remaining on the inmate's account will only be released to that inmate.

All incoming and outgoing mail must be on a plain white postcard (except legal mail).  Any other mail received will be returned to the sender.  Any mail that has been sprayed with scents or chemicals, color cards, etc. will also be returned.  

All mail must have a complete return address.  Any mail without a return address will be discarded.

Do not put any labels, mailing labels, or any other item that sticks to the postcard.  This is due to people sending drugs and contraband hidden under the labels.

DO NOT SEND CASH because it is treated as contraband in the jail.

The following is NOT allowed "on" or "in" postcards/mail:  stickers, newspaper, computer printouts, cards of any kind (Birthday, Anniversary, etc.), chemicals, scents, perfumes, colognes.  If any of these are included, the letter will not be passed on to the inmate.

How to Send Money

When inmates are booked into the Walker County Jail, the cash that they have on them is placed into an account at the Sheriff’s Office that allows them to purchase items from the jail commissary. 

The Walker County Jail offers a KIOSK located in the Front Lobby of the Facility for Family and Friends to deposit funds on an inmate's commissary account.  This KIOSK is able to take cash and credit cards.  For each cash transaction there is a service fee charge.  You can also add funds online at www.jailatm.com.

Money has to be in by Monday afternoon in order for the inmate to purchase an item from the store for that week.  There is a $10.00 co-pay for doctor's visits and a $6.00 co-pay for each prescription.  This money will come out of the inmate's jail account.  All inmates must buy their white clothing from the jail store (commissary), no exceptions.

An inmate's government check or payroll check if brought to the jail must be entered into their jail account.
