Inmate Search

To find out if your loved one is being held in Logan County, call the jail at (970) 522-2578 (option 4) or use VINE. Be prepared to provide the inmate’s full name and date of birth when using the VINE website.

Colorado VINE

The Colorado VINE system is a service through which victims of crime can search for information regarding the custody status of their offender, and to register to receive phone calls and e-mail notifications when the offender’s custody status changes. 

The VINE toll-free number for the Colorado VINE system is (888) 263-8463. This service is provided to assist Victims of Crime who have a right to know about their offender's custody status. Click this link to register.

Inmates being held for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the Colorado Department of Corrections (DOC), or charges from other counties will not be found by going to the VINE Link above. You will have to call the jail.

Bonding an Inmate out of the Logan Detention Center

You can call the Logan Detention Center 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 of a bond is to make sure the defendant will appear at all his or her court dates. The bond amount 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 is needed). 
  • 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 at the jail lobby 24/7 or online by clicking here. 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 Logan County Detention Center. The expectation is that these fees will be paid at the time of bonding your inmate out of jail. Colorado law does allow those fees to be charged, and you do not have to pay them at the time of bonding.

Paying Inmate Debt

The Logan County Sheriff's Office has a contract with the collection agency Advent Financial Systems (Pay My Jailer) to provide several convenient options to pay outstanding jail fees that were incurred while in custody.

Within thirty days of an inmate's release, their debt can be paid on-site at the jail via any Deputy. Inmate debt beyond thirty days must be paid via Pay My Jailer at 866-494-8556 or online at www.payafee.net.
