Denver County Bail Bonds

Denver City Process

Once the individual is taken into custody they will be transported to the Denver City Jail located at 490 West Colfax Avenue, Denver, Colorado. To begin the process of being booked into the Jail the individual will be searched and all of their property removed and placed in a secure location for safe keeping, including jewelry and personal effects. They will then be taken to the booking desk/area, there they will assist the officer in completing the booking process by confirming their name, address, and other personal information. Once the identification portion is complete, for the individual’s benefit they will go through a medical questionnaire/screening. Finally, their fingerprints, photograph and in the case of Felony charges a sample of their DNA will be taken to the courts.

The Officer will now inform them of the charges that are being filed against them and what the bond amount is given those charges. A pre-trial representative of the courts may interview them to see if they qualify for a Personal Recognizance bond. At this time they will be allowed to make phone calls to their Attorney, family or friends, via collect calls, in an effort to let people know where they are and to assist them in posting their bond. You will NOT be able to call them back, however you can obtain further information by dialing 720-358-2908 or clicking HERE

At this point, they will be “dressed” out awaiting classification and then placed in population until the bond is posted. If the bond is not posted they will remain incarcerated for the entire duration of the court process.

The following times are only approximate and are not to be relied upon as absolutes, many factors can and will affect these, such as how many people are being processed in or out of the Jail, time of day and the individuals own willingness to cooperate with the Officers.

Denver has instituted a new policy that any person being booked into the facility must have their identity confirmed by fingerprint analysis; this may take as long as 8 hours.
