- Surety Bonds:
Surety bonds are accepted from registered bail agents. A list of registered bail agents is located in the main lobby at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility. You may also refer to the telephone book or internet. The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office cannot, and will not, recommend a bail agent.
- Cash Bonds:
Cash bonds are accepted in the full amount of the bond. Each bond must be paid separately. In order to post a cash bond, you will need to present a valid photo I.D. No personal checks will be accepted.
Purging an inmate’s child support payment:
If a John E. Polk Correctional Facility inmate has been arrested for failure to pay child support, the inmate can purge the child support payment, or have someone else purge the child support payment, in order to facilitate the inmate’s release.
Purges are accepted in the full amount of the purge using cash, cashier’s check or money order. In order to pay a purge, you will need to present a valid photo I.D. All bank checks and Money Orders must be made payable to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, and should include the inmate booking number. No personal checks or surety bonds will be accepted.
F.S. 903.286 requires the Clerk of the Court to withhold from the return of a cash bond posted on behalf of a criminal defendant by a person other than a bail bond agent, sufficient funds to pay any unpaid court fees, court costs, and criminal penalties. This means that if the defendant for whom you are posting bond owes costs and penalties, those fees will be taken out of the bond money you posted. You may receive only a portion or none of the posted bond money even though the defendant makes all timely court appearances.
F.S. 903.26(2)(b) states that if a defendant fails to appear at the time, date and place of required appearance, the bond money will be forfeited.
