During regular business hours (Monday - Friday / 8 am - 4pm {non-Holidays}) bonds should be posted at the Boyd County Circuit Clerk's Office located in the Boyd County Judicial Center (https://www.boydcountyky.gov/justice-center). After hours bonds may be posted using the kiosk located in the lobby of the original jail. Note that the amount needed to post bond after hours will be an additional $40 to the amount of the bond. Example Inmate John Doe has a $500 bond, it would cost $540 to post bond after hours. ($25 Clerk Fee, $5 Jailer Fee, $10 Kiosk Fee) Credit Cards and Debit Cards can be used on kiosk.
Below is a description of type of bonds that can be imposed. The Jailer and/or jail staff has no ability to remove, reduce, re-type or make any change to a bond.

When a person is incarcerated there are several ways for that individual to post a bond to secure their release. The different types of bonds and a brief description are listed below.

  OR Bond - Own Recognizance, This bond requires an individual to sign stating they will return on their appointed court date and is not secured by any other means.
  Surety Bond - a surety bond requires someone of the Judges choosing to sign, most commonly a spouse or parent. But does not require any money at the time of release, however the bond does state a monetary amount and the signer assumes that burden if the court date is missed.
  Unsecured Bond – Has a monetary amount assigned to it but does not require money at the time of release, this bond is much like a surety bond but can be signed by the person being released.
  Secured Bond – Has a monetary value that must be paid before release. The total amount to be paid is set by the Judge issuing the bond.
  Partially Secured – Has a monetary value and a percentage of that must be paid before release. The total amount and the percentage to be paid are both set by the Judge issuing the bond.
  Property Bond – This type of bond has a monetary value and is allowed to be secured through the use of owned property. This can only be done at the courthouse.
