The only Bonds handled by the facility are full cash 10%. All other bonds are handled by the Court of Jurisdiction.
If the bond is paid in cash it must be for the exact amount as the Detention Center will not make change.
Monies for bond will be accepted 24 hours a day 7 days per week in the front lobby of the Justice Center by using the Kiosk. (Fee’s Apply)
If you are not from this area and have someone who can post bond, have them obtain a cashier’s check made out to the court of jurisdiction for the full amount of bond owed and have them mail it overnight to the Seward County Detention Center, 261 S 8th St. Suite 099 Seward, NE 68434.
If the inmate is unable to post bond the Detention Center will from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday – Friday, excluding holidays contact the court and advise them the inmate is in custody. The Court will then contact the Detention Center when they want the inmate brought up for a bond hearing.
Twenty four (24) hours after bond has been set the defendant can request a bond review hearing (If the defendant has an attorney that request must come from the attorney).
All contacts with the court must be made through the U.S. mail System.
