How do I Bond Out a Detainee?Once a Detainee has been processed and/or booked into the Kane County Adult Justice Center, he and/or she can be "bonded out" and/or released from custody if a bond amount has been set by the Kane County 16th Judicial Circuit. Below are some guidelines to assist you in the bond process prior to arriving at the Kane County Sheriff's Office.
How Long does the Bond Out Process Take and What Should I Expect?There are a myriad of steps that must be taken to ensure accuracy during the bond process. The process can take several hours to complete and we thank you for your patience during this time period. After the bond is paid, the Kane County Sheriff's Office confirms if the Detainee has any outstanding warrants prior to being released. If a Detainee has an outstanding warrant than the Detainee is not released from custody. The Detainee is then sent to the agency that is holding the warrant. Detainees with holds from other agencies (such as the Illinois Department of Corrections (I.D.O.C.) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) can be bonded out; however, they will not be released from custody. The Detainee will be remain in custody at the Kane County Adult Justice Center until the agency who requested the hold – transfers said Detainee to a different facility.
What Happens to My Money After I Post Bond?After the bond fee is collected by the Kane County Sheriff's Office, the money is transferred to the Kane County Circuit Court Clerk's Office. For additional details regarding the disposition of a refund, please contact a service representative at the
Kane County Circuit Court Clerk's Office or telephone their office at 630-232-3413.

The cost of shipping is covered by the money on the Detainee's Fund Account.
