Bonding an Inmate out of the Lincoln County Jail

Call the jail to find out the type of bond and the amount that is required for your inmate. The bond is set by a judge according to a court-approved schedule. The purpose is to make sure the defendant will appear at all his or her court dates. The amount of the bond is what it will take to release the inmate from jail. 

There are three types of bonds—personal recognizance (PR), surety, and cash. 

  • PR bonds are issued by the judge and only require a signature (no money). 
  • Surety bonds require a bondsman, who will pay the bond and charge you 10% to 15% of the bond amount as a fee (none of this money will be returned to you). 
  • Cash bonds must be paid in full with cash, debit/credit card, or money order. Payment is accepted online or at the jail lobby. The full amount of a cash bond is returned once all court appearances have been made.

There is a $30 booking fee and a $10 bond fee for all inmates at the Lincoln County Jail. The expectation is that these fees will be paid at the time of bonding your inmate out of jail. But, Colorado law does allow those fees to be charged, and you do not have to pay them at the time of bonding.

Please call the jail if you have any questions or concerns.
