Bond Information


A bond, designed to ensure an individual's appearance in court, is set according to a court-approved schedule. The amount of the bond is what it will take to release an individual from jail.

To determine an inmate's bond type and amount please call 970-725-3343 and select or ask for the jail.  For information on the return of bond funds contact the Grand County Courts at 970-725-3357.

NOTE:  Once funds are deposited on an inmate’s account, the funds become the property of the inmate. No money is returned to the depositor unless the funds are released to an individual by the inmate.


The Grand County Sheriff's Office charges a $10 filing fee (cash only) for each bond.

In addition, the Grand County Sheriff's Office charges a $30 booking fee.

Surety Bond

Bond may be posted through the service of any state-licensed bondsman, who may require a co-signer and/or collateral to secure the bond. Staff members will not recommend a bondsman.
