Electronic Monitoring Required (GPS, SCRAM, etc.)*We can only post bails where EM is an additional condition of release when: 1.We have confirmation from the person's attorney (or the court) that the person is on the transport list for the day our volunteer can be in court. AND 2. We have confirmation from the person's attorney (or the court or probation department) that there is an EM unit available on that date as well. NOTE: This policy does not apply to people whose cases originate out of Middlesex County AND are held pre-trial at the Billerica House of Corrections.

Please specify the jail where your client is being held. If your client is held anywhere BUT Nashua Street Jail or South Bay House of Correction, your client will need a ride from the facility before the Bail Fund can post bail. We can generally assist with rides, but it is always preferable for transportation to be provided by someone who knows the person being bailed. Please specify in the additional information field below who will be available to give your client a ride.
