If you’re looking for a friend or loved one who has been arrested, A Aabbott & Cathy Bail Bonds has the resources you need to find and locate the arrested party. If you find the inmate, we can help get them released through our stress-free bail bond process.


Step 1: Gather Information

Some inmate search tools only require a last name to locate an inmate, however, you’ll most likely need the following information to accurately locate someone:

  • Full legal name
  • Date of birth
  • Approximate date and time of arrest, if known


Step 2: Use the Broward Sheriff’s Office Arrest Search

The Broward Sheriff’s Office provides an online Arrest Search tool that allows you to look up individuals who have been detained. You can search by last name, first name, and booking date to get results and information such as holding facility location and arrest number.


Step 3: Contact the Jail

If you cannot find the information online or need further assistance, you can contact the Broward County Jail directly at (800) 224-5937. We suggest giving the office as much information as possible about the person you are searching for so they can provide you with the inmate’s location, charges, and bond amount.


Step 4: Understanding the Bond Process

To bond someone out of jail, you’ll need to know the total bond amount and the process for posting bail. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office website offers detailed information on how to bond an inmate, including acceptable payment methods. A Aabbott & Cathy Bail Bonds can help with the release of an inmate, just give us a call at (954) 463 – 6363 today to get started.


Step 5: Visiting the Inmate

Once you have located the inmate and understand the bond process, you may want to visit them. Check the Broward County Sheriff’s Office website for information on visiting hours, rules, and how to schedule a visit.
