Bonding someone out of the Coweta County Jail

If an inmate has bondable charges, he or she can bond out at any time. A bond can be paid with or without a bail bond agent. The method (cash/surety) and amount of money needed for bonding someone out of the Coweta County Jail depends on their charges. Most crimes, but not all crimes, are bondable offenses.

  • Cash Bond

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, the money will be forfeited. 

To sign a cash bond, you must bring a photo identification card and enough cash to cover the bond. The sheriff's office only accepts paper money (no change allowed). The entire amount of the cash bond must be paid before the inmate is released. 

All bonds must be accompanied with a State of Georgia Bond fee of $20 that must be paid in cash.

  • Surety Bond

When you use a Bail Bondsman for a surety bond, you will be required to pay a fee (equal to 15 percent of the bond amount) that will not be refunded.

Visiting Hours and Rules

With the completion of the video visitation center, Coweta County Jail no longer offers face-to-face visits. Instead, visitors who are on the inmate’s visitation list are assigned to a video monitor in the visitation center during that inmate's scheduled visitation time. 

An inmate is allowed only one visiting session each scheduled visitation day. Each visit is limited to fifteen (15) minutes.  A maximum of four visitors (including children over two years of age) will be permitted to visit during a visitation session. All visitors under the age of eighteen must be accompanied by an adult. Children under two years of age are not allowed to visit.

All visitors sixteen years of age and older must present a government issued photo identification card in order to visit.

Visitors must complete the registration process at the visitation desk 15 minutes before the scheduled visit to attend the current visitation session.  After registration, the visitor must remain in the lobby until the inmate’s name is called.

All visitors must pass a security screening process before they enter the video visitation center.  You will only be allowed two attempts to successfully complete the screening. For this reason, visitors should leave all personal items in their vehicles.  The only items allowed are the visitor's ID and one automobile key.

Visitors who have criminal records or who have been previously incarcerated may not be allowed to visit. This decision is made on a case by case basis.

Intoxicated visitors are not allowed to visit and may be arrested.

Food, drink, and tobacco products are not allowed in the lobby, visitation area, or anywhere within the jail facility.

Children must be kept under control at all times and may not be left unattended at any time.

Visitors are not allowed to pass anything to inmates.  Attempting to pass items could result in criminal prosecution.

Visitors are not allowed to stand or loiter anywhere near a perimeter fence, or to attempt to communicate with inmates from the facility parking lot. 

Dress Code

Please use common sense regarding appropriate attire during your visit. All jail visitors must dress in an appropriate and acceptable manner. Visitors are prohibited from inappropriately exposing themselves to inmates, and must be appropriately dressed at all times. 

Men: Must wear a shirt with sleeves, pants or shorts at/below the knee, and shoes. 

Women: NO short shorts, halter tops, short dresses or skirts more than two inches above the knee, see through blouses, tank tops, bathing suits, misuse or exposure of undergarments, or any attire that exposes the shoulders.

All incoming inmate mail—with the exception of legal mail or other specifically approved items—must be in metered or pre-stamped, postcard form. It is important to include the full name of the inmate when sending correspondence since it is not unusual to have more than one inmate with the same name.

The books will have to be shipped PREPAID directly to the Detention Center by a publisher or bookstore addressed in the inmate's name. Magazines are no longer accepted.

Because there are many ways that drugs and other contraband can be introduced into the jail, the following common items may not be sent to an inmate in custody at the Coweta County Jail:

  • stamps
  • stationery
  • writing instruments
  • items containing glue
  • oversized greeting cards
  • credit cards
  • blank checks
  • plastic items
  • jewelry
  • anything used to conduct a business
  • candy
  • food
  • Polaroid pictures or sexually explicit photographs

How to Call an Inmate

Inmates at the Coweta County Jail cannot receive incoming phone calls, however, they have access to phones and can make outgoing calls from the inmate housing area daily. Phone calls are recorded and may be monitored at any time. 

Absent disciplinary restrictions, inmates are free to place phone calls daily from 10:00 am until 10:00 pm. A service fee will be charged. The rates charged are regulated and approved by the Georgia Public Service Commission.

If you are receiving unwanted calls from an inmate, you may request a block on your number by calling Paytel at (800) 729-8355, or the Coweta County Jail at (770) 253-1664, Monday through Friday, during the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

How to Send Money

To put money on a Coweta County Sheriff’s Office inmate’s account, there are three different options. There is a $2.50 transaction fee for each deposit for money orders and cash, and a 10% transaction fee for credit and debit cards.

Inmate's Full Name/Inmate Number

When sending money to an inmate, U.S. Postal money orders are preferred because they are immediately credited to the inmate’s account. There is a minimum ten-day waiting period on any other type of money order.  Personal checks are not accepted.  Please do not send cash.  

  • Jail ATM Kiosk (Bonding Area)

Cash, credit card, or debit card can be brought to the jail and deposited on an inmate's account using the Jail ATM Kiosk machine, located in the bonding area. A service fee does apply.
