If an inmate is granted a cash bond by the court and is able to post the bond amount, Detention Center staff can receipt the bond payment.

Basin Avenue, Pahrump, NV 89060.) Persons wishing to post a bond outside of those days and hours may use the Inmate Canteen Kiosk, an automated system for accessing inmate accounts (located in the  lobby of the Detention Center). The system accepts both cash and credit cards. After posting bond through this Kiosk the individual must notify Detention Staff that the bail has been posted.
