24/7 Bail Posting at Kitsap County Jail

Methods of Posting Bail

Kitsap County Jail offers three convenient methods for bail payment:

  • Cash Payments: Pay the full bail amount in cash.
  • Cashier Checks: Ensure checks are payable to the court overseeing the defendant’s case (not to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office).
  • Bail Bonds: Obtain a bail bond from authorized companies in Kitsap County, listed under “Bail Bonds” in the yellow pages.

Cash Bail Refunds

Cash bail may be refunded once the defendant completes their court appearances. Note that refunds are processed by the respective court, not the Sheriff’s Office.

Release Timeframes

Post bail posting, release times vary between 2-6 hours, depending on factors like the day, time, and other pending releases. Patience is appreciated as the jail ensures the safe release of the correct individuals.

Release Procedure

Released individuals exit through the glass door in the northeast corner of the jail, located behind the county courthouse. This designated exit point ensures a safe and organized process.
