FAQ: Can I Pay The El Centro Jail The Full Bail Amount?
Yes you can pay the full bail amount without the use of a bondsman. This is called “cash bail”. If you wish to have someone released on cash bail you will need to pay the full amount to the jail either in cash or with a cashier’s check. You should check with the clerk at the jail to find out what forms of payment they accept.
Since bail in El Centro tends to be quite high, $20,000 on average, most people tend to use a bondsman who charges 10% rather than the full amount.
