Individuals who wish to make cash bail payments to the Erie County Sheriff's Office may do so by using GovPayNet®. GovPayNet accepts major credit, debit and prepaid debit cards for cash bail twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week on-site, online, or by phone at 1-877-EZBAIL5 (1-877-392-2455). Cardholders can make payments on their own behalf or on behalf of friends or family. You only need to know some basic information about the inmate and the correct bail amount, information that the Sheriff's Office can provide prior to the cardholder contacting GovPayNet. For added convenience, GovPayNet’s dedicated, bilingual Criminal Justice Payment Specialists are available around the clock 7 days a week for cardholder assistance.
Please be aware that there is a separate service fee associated with this method of posting bail which is non-refundable as it is provided by GovPayNet® and not the Erie County Sheriff's Office.
