Dodge County Jail

The Dodge County Jail (aka the Dodge County Detention Center) is located in Eastman, Georgia and is operated by the Dodge County Sheriff's Department. This jail houses adult male and female inmates—both felony and misdemeanor offenders—who have been arrested by local county or municipal law enforcement, as well as pre-trial and convicted inmates. This new, state of the art facility can house 150 plus detainees. 

The purpose of the jail is to receive, process, and detain people that have been taken into custody by various law enforcement agencies. When a person has been turned over to the detention center, they are given an opportunity to post bond. 

If the detainee can post bond, they will be released pending a court hearing. If they can't make bond, they will be detained at the jail until the court makes a decision on their case. 

Inmates who have been convicted and sentenced will be detained until their sentence is served or they are transferred to a state facility.

Bonding someone out of the Dodge County Jail

A criminal bond is a financial guarantee that the arrested person will appear in court on a specified date. A BOND IS NOT A FINE. A person posting a bond must appear before a judge to answer criminal charges. 

A fee of $20.00 is charged for every bond that is written by the jail. This fee may be paid in cash and is non-refundable.

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 Dodge 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. Failure to appear at the appointed time will result in forfeiture of the bond amount and may result in a Bench Warrant ordered by the judge.

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), money order, or cashier’s check. The entire amount of the cash bond must be paid at the bonding office before the inmate is released. 

  • 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.
