Has you or someone you loved been arrested in Denver? At Tayler Made Bail Bonding LLC, we know how scary of a situation that can be, so we have provided you a guide of everything you might need to know in order to get your loved one out of jail and home safely.
The Denver County Sheriff’s Department operates two detention facilities the Smith Road Facility and the Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center. The Smith Road Facility is the current county jail and where most sentenced offenders are held after they have been convicted. The Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center is where most pre-trial, or non-convicted detainees are held until their bond is posted or they have gone to trial.
The Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center is also where the Bond Desk resides and where the bondsman will need to go in order to post bail. The Bond Desk closes at 10:00 PM so it is recommended that all paperwork be in order and the bondsman be at the facility at 9:00 PM. Even if the bond is posted timely there may be some wait time in order to get your loved one released. Once an individual is arrested, they are required to be fully booked into the facility before they are released. This process can take hours as their fingerprints must be submitted and returned with an identity. This process generally takes approximately 4-6 hours to be completed.
Every person arrested in Denver County is charged a non-refundable $50.00 bond fee that must be paid at the time an “appearance bond” is posted. Individuals who are not in jail but do have an active Denver County Court warrant for their arrest may be eligible for a ‘walk-through’ bond. To check your eligibility for this program, call 720-337-0062.
For some situations you have the option to have your warrant vacated and a new court date set, without posting a bond and paying a $100.00 warrant cancellation fee. For more information on this program click here

Denver which is commonly known as the “Mile High City” as it sits 1,609 above sea level is the capital of Colorado. Since the beginning it has always been a prime location of progressive thinking and rapid growth.
Created as a gold mining town in 1858, it quickly became central supply hub for all the new mines popping up in and around the Rocky Mountains. This rapid population boom along with critical investors allowed them to create a rail way from Cheyenne to western Kansas that traveled through the city of Denver that brought new people and supplies to this expanding area.
It later become one of the central locations for gas and oil companies due to its proximity to the mountains and energy field. These industries helped them weather the storm throughout World War II as well as the Great Depression.
Another element that helped the expansion of the city of Denver was their dedication to inclusiveness for minorities. This commitment brought immigrants from all walks of life to the city and suburbs of Denver which created a diverse and ever-expanding culture.
As of 2017 Denver’s population is around 704,621 and their key economic growth sectors are in energy, government and military, technology and agriculture.
