Liberty County Jail

The Liberty County Jail is located in Bristol, Florida. This facility is operated by the Liberty County Sheriff's Office Corrections Division, and houses adult men and women — both misdemeanor and felony inmates — who have been arrested by local county or municipal law enforcement. 

Some of the inmates at the Liberty County Jail have been tried and sentenced to the jail or the Florida Department of Corrections. However, most inmates have not yet been tried by the courts, so they are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  

Individuals who are arrested in Liberty County will appear before a Judge within the first 24 hours of arrest. The Judge informs each arrestee of his/her charge(s) and sets the bond amount for each charge. 

After their first court appearance, each inmate is given a phone call. If the inmate is able to bond out, they must complete the necessary procedures before being released from custody with a date to return to court. Inmates who are not released or not able to bond out will continue to be held in the county jail.

Inmate Search

To find out if your loved one is being held in Liberty County, call the jail at 850-643-2075 or use VINE (see below). Be prepared to provide the inmate’s full name and date of birth when using the VINE website.

Florida VINE

The Florida 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. 

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 Florida 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 someone out of the Liberty County Jail

The method (cash/surety) and amount of money needed for bonding someone out of the Liberty County Jail depends on their charges. Most crimes, but not all crimes, are bondable offenses.

When you pay a cash bond, it is refunded to you when all court appearances have been made and the case is discharged, dismissed, or a not guilty verdict rendered. If the arrestee fails to appear or is found guilty, the money will be forfeited. 

When you use a Bail Bondsman for a surety bond, you will not get a refund.
