Homepage > Corrections > Posting Bond

Bond may be posted for inmates 24 hours a day at the McHenry County Sheriff's Department Correctional Bureau facility except during shift change at 6:00 AM - 6:30 AM, 2:00 PM - 2:30 PM and 10:00 PM - 10:30 PM. Acceptable payment methods are listed below:

  • Cash (Note: If you are posting bond with cash, you need to have the exact amount for the bond and bail processing fee. Only the exact amount will be accepted and the facility does not have a way to make change.)
  • Traveler's Checks
  • MasterCard, Visa or Discover (a fee on the use of credit cards will be charged)
  • Cashier's checks will only be accepted after being approved on a case-by-case basis by the Circuit Clerk's Office. The correctional division must receive notification of the approval from the Circuit Clerk's Office before the cashier's check will be accepted for bond.

Effective July 7, 2003, a $28.00 bail bond processing fee will be assessed when bond is posted at the McHenry County Sheriff's Department Correctional Bureau facility. This fee is being collected pursuant to McHenry County Ordinance No. 0-9901-32-08.
