Information For Arrests and Bail Bonds Within and Near Seattle Washington

Upon arrest in Seattle, the arrestee will usually first be brought to the nearest Seattle Police Department precinct for booking. At that point, if the arrest was for a traffic violation or DUI, you may be released and given an arraignment date to return, usually within a couple days, where bail will be set. If you are not eligible to be released after booking, you will likely be moved to the King County Correctional Facility to await your bail hearing. If you did not prepare for bail or cannot arrange bail you will have to remain in jail until the conclusion of your trial.

TIP: Any licensed bail agency in the United States may post bail or bond in the state of Washington. So if you do not live in Washington, you can start emailing agents now rather than trying to find one specific to the Seattle courts.

Municipal Court of Seattle

600 Fifth Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104-1900
Hours: M-F 8-5
Court Contact: (206) 684-5600
This court is the most likely place where the bail bond hearing will take place as well as where the bail bondsman will post the bail. WARNING: The Muncipal Court of Seattle is known for being particularly tough at bail hearings. During the bail arraignment, the Seattle city attorney’s office will regularly ask for high bail amounts, restrictive conditions imposed on bail release, and other annoyances. If you were just arrested, we recommend that you contact a bail bondsman at once to advise you as to how to best prepare for this arraignment. They may also be able to advise you about certain attorneys that specialize in getting bail amounts lowered.

The city of Seattle contracts with three public defender organizations:
1. Associated Counsel For The Accused (ACA)
2. Northwest Defenders Association (NDA)
3. The Defender Association (TDA)
TIP: When you contact a bail bondsman for information about bail requirements in Seattle, you may also want to ask for advice about how to select the best public defender. Bail bondsmen often know all the attorneys and can recommend those that they feel will give you the best representation based on your case. Since the bondsmen want your business, they will usually be happy to help 24 hours a day via email.

Seattle Detention Centers Where Bail Bonds Requestors are Likely Held

The city of Seattle contracts with a number of jails to house arrestees, so unlike other major cities, detainees can be detained at any one of several locations.

King County Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention
King County Correctional Facility – KCCF Seattle
500 5th Ave.
Seattle, WA 98104
(206) 296-1234
Most arrestees who are awaiting bail or trial are detained here if they fall under the jurusdiction of the Seattle Munciple Courts. To post bail here, bring cash, cashier’s check or money order to the reception window at the King County Correctional Facility (KCCF) in Seattle or Regional Justice Center (RJC) in Kent. Money orders or Cashier checks must be made out to King County Dept of Adult & Juvenile Detention. Money orders posted after 4:00 PM hours or on the weekends will be verified prior to processing which may result in a delay of the release. Cashier’s checks or money orders require the following information:
Pay to: King County Department
Senders name and address
Inmate Name and B/A number (found on Jail Inmate Lookup Service)
NOTE: The KCCF and RJC are closed to the public (including bail bond agencies) from 10:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.

King County Department of Adult and Juvenile Detention
Regional Justice Center – RJC Kent
620 West James Street
Kent, WA 98032
(206) 296-1234

Snohomish County Main Jail

Customer Service Hours:
Reception Desk: 8:00 am – 10:00 pm, Monday through Friday
Inmate Accounts Window: 7:00 am – 11:00 pm, 7-days a week
This facility may occasionally hold pre-trial detainees here, however most of these inmates have already been sentenced. So someone who has been convicted but is eligible for bail on appeal is likely to be here.

Note: In the past year Seattle municipal courts have stopped detaining defendants at the Renton Jail or the Yakima Jail.
