How to bail out an inmate at the Washoe County Detention Facility
Explained by Las Vegas Criminal Defense Attorneys

To bail out an inmate at the Washoe County Detention Facility in Reno, people may go to either:

  • The cashier at the Washoe County Jail at 911 E. Parr Boulevard, Reno, NV 89512

To post bail, the person must provide the following information:

    • court of jurisdiction,
    • the bail amount,
    • the name of the inmate,
    • the inmate's birth date, and
  • his/her booking number

Bail can be paid by:

    • Cash
    • U.S. certified or cashier's checks payable to the court handling the case
    • Postal money orders (with the money amount typed or stamped) payable to the court handling the case
    • Bonds posted by bail agents (except for cash-only bails and fines)

Once bail is posted, the inmate is typically released within 1 to 4 hours. People released for "time served" are usually released at 5:00 a.m. The jail doesn't provide transportation; however, Citi-Fare buses travel between the jail and downtown Reno.
