The court assigns bail and/or bond for most people in jail. Bail may be paid at Court Administration during normal business hours and at the jail at other times. Bonds must be arranged through a private vendor that you may find in the telephone book or in our lobby. We will not advise you on the bonding company.
Bail vs. Bond:
Once bond or bail is paid the jail will release a person within an hour of the notification. The court may also place other conditions on a person when they are released on bail or bond.
The jail does not set court appearances. Contact Court Administration at 218-927-7350 or visit the Aitkin County Court calendar on the web.
Check out our In Custody list. If a person is in another facility waiting on transfer to our jail, we will not give transfer details or times.
