Jail Visitation

Paying a Bond

If you are paying a bond for someone who has been arrested in Ripley County, you will need to contact the jail to obtain the correct bond amount.

During courthouse business hours, which are Monday- Friday 8:00 am – 4:00 pm, excluding government holidays, you must pay the bond at the Clerk’s office.  Bonds can be paid with a money order or cashier’s check.

After the courthouse has closed, you may pay the bond at the jail. Bonds at the jail can be paid with a postal money order (other money orders are not accepted) or cashiers check from a local bank.

Inmates can also be bonded out thru Govpay but there is a service fee. Govpay: 1-888-604-7888
