A person may be released on his/her own recognizance, through a private bonding company, by the posting of a Property Bond or by posting a Cash Bond.

However, each individual’s bond varies according to the nature of the offense charged, and you should contact the Jackson County Jail @ 256-574-1884 to find out the exact type of bond required for a certain individual.
