kccbf is not a bail bond agent.
We do not require a co-signer or ask for repayment. We do expect our freed clients to stay in touch with their assigned staff member or volunteer, attend their scheduled court appearances, and comply with any court orders. Once the court case is closed, the money that we paid for bail is returned to us and used to pay bail for other defendants.
