How to Post Bond at 4th Avenue Jail
If a friend or member of your family has been arrested and booked into jail in Maricopa County and the Judge ordered that a bond be posted for their release, you may be wondering how to go about posting this bond. Bonds can be paid at the 4th Avenue Jail (north side of the building), located at:
Maricopa County 4th Avenue Jail
201 S. 4th Avenue
Phoenix, AZ 85003
Please note, the jail does not accept cash or credit cards – acceptable means of payment for posting a bond include, a Cashier's Check, a U.S. Postal Money Order or a Western Union Money Order. These must be made payable to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.
Once a bond is posted, it can take up to 48 hours for the inmate to be released. Also, please note: If an inmate has any other holds, including an immigration hold or a hold by another law enforcement agency, posting the bond will not enable the inmate to be released. If you have any questions or want to confirm any other possible holds that may prevent the inmate's release, you may contact the Sheriff's Information Management Services at (602) 876-0322. You will need the person's full name, date of birth, and booking number (if you have it).
Also notable, any transactions over $10,000 will require that you provide your social security number in order to post the bond, which is a requirement of the Internal Revenue Service.
You can also use a bail bonds company and we will discuss the process for doing this in a separate post.
