Bonding Process

**All cash bonds posted at the Gwinnett County Jail must be paid with the
exact dollar amount; the Gwinnett County Jail will not provide change.**

Bonds may be posted only after the booking and identification process is complete. Once completed, the detainees are placed in a holding area with access to collect calling phones in order to make arrangements for release on bond.

NOTE: Bond amounts are determined by the judges or the court system, not by the Sheriff’s Office. Department personnel cannot assist in lowering bond amounts or changing court ordered conditions of bond.

Ownership and equity amounts are verified prior to acceptance.

If the property is not located in Gwinnett County, the owner must obtain an “Approved Bond” from the Sheriff in the county where the property is located. Land that is currently for sale will not be accepted. If the property is currently being used as surety on other bonds, the amount of equity must be enough to cover all bonds posted. Property that is being used as collateral for a bond may not be sold until the bond is removed or the charges adjudicated. The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office does not accept property bonds from out-of-state, nor will we prepare a property bond for another state.
