Bonding an Inmate Out Using Cash Legal
If you are posting an inmate's bond, please have the exact bond amount in cash. Detention Center staff is unable to accept checks or credit cards for bonds, and change is not available. For every bond, there is an additional $10 bond fee charged by the court and a $30 booking fee charged by the Detention Center, each of which must be paid separately in cash. For example, to post a $200 bond, you must bring $200 in cash, along with a separate $10 bond fee and a separate $30 booking fee, also in cash. The bond and bond fee cannot be combined in one cash payment.
Bonding an Inmate Out Using a Credit Card
Broomfield County now accepts credit and debit card payments through AllPaid. Payments can be made with a major credit, debit, or prepaid debit card, including:
Payments can be made for:

The cardholder acknowledges that he/she relinquishes any claim to these funds and understands and agrees that these funds will become the property of the defendant. Furthermore, the cardholder understands that upon disposition of the charges/cases against the defendant, any funds ordered returned by the court will be returned to the defendant and not the cardholder.
