Nassau County Jail
Some of the inmates have been tried and sentenced to 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.
When an individual is arrested in Nassau County, they are brought to the booking desk of the Nassau County Jail for processing (property inventory, booking, medical screening, and cell assignment). Processing must be completed prior to an inmate being considered for release or visitation.
To find out if your loved one is being held in Nassau County, click here, call (904)548-4006, or use VINE (see below). Be prepared to provide the inmate’s full name and date of birth when using the VINE website.
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 Nassau County Jail
If an inmate has bondable charges, he or she can bond out at any time. For further information on bonding out an inmate, or to find out the bond amount on an inmate, call
There are several ways for an inmate to be released from jail including posting bond, qualifying for pretrial release, being released resulting from a court hearing, etc.
The method (cash/surety) and amount of money needed for bonding someone out of the Pre-Trial Detention Center 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. Any further questions regarding Inmate Processing or Bond Information may be directed to the booking desk at (904) 548-4006.
If an individual is incarcerated in the jail due to a civil charge, such as a Writ of Attachment, the judge may have set a purge amount that must be paid to be released.
The purge amount can be paid at the public reception area of the Nassau County Jail by certified or cashier’s check (drawn on a local bank and subject to verification), or by money order made payable to the Office of the Sheriff.
