Important Jail Policies and Procedures

Inmates and visitors must have consideration and respect for others during visits. They must, therefore, refrain from disruptive or distractive behavior; profane or threatening language and/or physical contact (if possible) that could allow the passing of contraband.

Prior to admittance into a BCSO correctional facility, adult visitors (18 yrs of age or older) shall be required to produce a current and valid government issued photo ID (i.e. driver’s license, passport, welfare ID)

The on-duty Security Reception Officer at the facility will confirm the individual’s approval to be a visitor by reviewing the Inmates Visit List in the BCSO Inmate Tracking System. Individuals who have not been approved to visit with the inmate will not be permitted to visit with the inmate.

All visitors will be subjected to routine sign-in and search procedures, in accordance with BCSO policy and procedures.

Bail and Bail Bondsman

Massachusetts is one of 8 states that does not allow private commercial bail bonding. The remaining are Maine, Oregon, Illinois, Kentucky, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Washington, D.C. When no other funding options are available to you, you may have to spend the time between hearing and trial in jail. Remaining in jail is at no cost to you, but if you are innocent it can be a traumatic experience you probably want to avoid. To avoid jail time, there are still options in states like Massachusetts.

A signature bond is a way for friends and family to take responsibility for you completing all your court responsibilities. Essentially a signature bond is a legal agreement, or promissory, that the defendant presents him or herself at court. So you need to present yourself or everyone on the signature bond agreement is held accountable. Ask your lawyer for more information.
