Bail is the money lodged with the court to secure the temporary release of a pretrial inmate. It is used by the court to help guarantee the defendant’s return once the trial starts. Failure to appear will result in the bail getting forfeited.

If a defendant cannot post bail due to financial difficulties, he or she can hire a bondsman to help him.

In exchange for this service, the bondsman charges 10% of the bail amount as his fee. It cannot be refunded.

If you’re coming to the Sheriff’s Office for other business anyway, why not bring a non-perishable food item (s) with you to donate to the cause. Or if you can’t make it to the food pantry to donate your items, drop them off here to our administration lobby Monday through Friday, 8:30AM-4:30PM or drop them off anytime (we are open 24 hrs.) in our front Jail lobby.

We will be delivering our donations to the food pantry the first week of November so please don’t wait. Donate early and often.

Dear Concerned Citizen:
Today, I received your letter describing an incident with a police officer, while entering the Court House. This incident took place on September 27, 2017, before noon and I share your concern about this type of behavior. You do mention, that while you are remaining anonymous at this time, you do intend to follow up with legal action and I would not blame you.
However, by being anonymous, I am not afforded the opportunity to talk with you in more detail about your encounter. A discussion with you would enable me to pinpoint who may be behind such actions. Knowing this would assist me in getting to the very bottom of this problem, instead of having to use a shotgun approach.
At first, I assumed this might have involved one of my security officers until you mentioned that you were also sending this to another police agency. Now I am not sure if it is my staff or an Officer from another police dept.
I would very much appreciate a call from you, so that I can narrow down just who this officer was and to address your concerns with him. You may reach me at the Branch County Sheriff’s Office, between 06:00 and 03:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at , Ext 2224.

Thank you for your concern.
