Surety bonds are business transactions between you and a bonding agent.  Jail staff cannot recommend any individual bonding agent.  Information on bonding agents can be found online through various sources. 

Property bonds are completed at the Justice Center, 201 Laporte Ave, Fort Collins.  The only type of collateral accepted for this bond type is real estate.  The court will not accept automobiles, RVs, ATVs, or any other type of property. Contact the Justice Center for property bonds.

Personal Recognizance bonds are bond types where the inmate can sign themselves out without any collateral.

Personal Recognizance with Co-Obligator bond (PR/CO) is when another individual is required to sign on the bond with the inmate.  No collateral is necessary upon signing the bond, however if the inmate fails to appear you will be financially responsible for the amount indicated on the bond.  These bonds must be completed in person at the jail. 

During busy times, it can take up to six hours for an inmate to be processed and released.
