Cash Bail Bonds at the Maricopa County Jail

Anyone can post cash bail bonds at the Maricopa County Jail, but not everyone should do it. If you plan on posting your own bond, remember:

  1. The jail only takes money orders and cashier's checks from the public.  
  2. Never conduct business at a jail unless you KNOW you have no warrants for your arrest. You will be required to present identification at the jail and your name WILL be checked against the database.  If a warrant is found, you WILL be arrested.

If you live locally and have some time to kill (hours), you can save money by posting small bonds under $500 and bonds set for Failure to Pay Fines.  For larger bonds I usually recommend the use of a qualified Phoenix bondsman. Licensed bail bond agents have the power to arrest and surrender the defendant back to jail; an unlicensed person cannot surrender their bond back to jail, nor do they have the power to arrest the defendant. Having a bail bondsman on your side is good insurance.

We've heard it a 1,000 times, "He'll never run!", "He's never missed a hearing", or "He loves me, he'd never run".  Listen up; people will do almost anything to stay out of jail and when the chips are down, they usually think of themselves first.  The small fee that a bondsman charges for the bond is palled by the feeling of destitution you have if the defendant runs, or threatens to run and you have no power to stop him.
