Post Bail

If you wish to post bail for an inmate, you must know their date of birth. The on-site process will take several hours to complete. All bail posting is conducted at the Riverhead Facility.

Bail can be posted using ONLY one of the following forms:

      • Cash
      • Bank Check
      • Cashier Check
      • Credit  Card
Bank and cashier checks are only accepted during normal banking hours. The check will be verified at the branch from which it was drawn.

Bank or cashier checks must be written to the Sheriff of Suffolk County NY

Credit card transactions are processed through a third party provider. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards are accepted. A non-refundable fee for service will be added to the total bail amount. The credit card holder must be present at the facility with a valid photo ID to complete the transaction.
