Paying bail for someone in the Washington County Jail

If you want to post bail or bond for someone currently in Jail, this can be done at certain times in person at the Jail or Court Administration. 

Bail and/or Bonds will only be accepted by Court Administration in the Courthouse Building, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Due to varying hours, please call ahead to the jail if you are planning on posting bail weekdays after 4:00 P.M., or on weekends: 651-430-7900.

Bail for Washington County Inmates with out of county warrants must be posted at the jail or at the agency who issued the warrant. For example, if someone is arrested on an outstanding Ramsey County warrant and is brought to Washington County Jail, bail must either be posted at Washington County Jail or at Ramsey County. 

  • Bail is accepted in cash (exact amount) or credit card.
  • The credit card must be in the name of the person posting the bail with a valid ID. 
  • Bonds are accepted from approved bonding agents.
  • Bail money is generally returned to the defendant once they have satisfied the courts requirements, but may be forfeited if the defendant does not appear on the assigned court date or may be credited towards fines and fees due to the court.
