Inmate Release Information

Inmates eligible for release depends on their criminal charges, bail dollar amounts, whether released by court during court proceedings or completion of court sentencing.

Individuals arrested with criminal charges and bail dollar amounts, and are housed in the Main Jail Facility prior to court proceedings or sentencing may be eligible for release. Full bail amounts for all charges must be paid prior to the inmate's release. Bail amounts are paid at the Clark County Courthouse during normal business hours or at the Clark County Sheriff's Office Records Department after business hours. The full bail amounts may be paid by family or friends, or by a bail bond company. Bail bond companies usually charge 10% of the amount of bail to be paid to their company for services. Contact a local bail bond company for more details, information and requirements.

Individuals arrested with "no bail" criminal charges cannot be released prior to court proceedings and are housed in the Main Jail Facility until released or sentenced by the courts.

Individuals sentenced to jail time by the courts will be housed in the Clark County Jail Facilities until they have fulfilled the courts requirements. Inmates and offenders will be released on the date their sentence is completed. Release dates are calculated according to the amount of time court sentenced and/or dollars of court imposed fines required paid before release. Earned good time or qualified inmate worker (also known as trusty) time, and court imposed fines reduced by jail housing rate per day will adjust the calculated release dates.
