Bail can be posted using any one of the following types of payment:

Please note that bank and cashier checks are only accepted during normal banking hours. If you do present a check, it must be verified at the branch from which it was drawn and written to the "Sheriff of Suffolk County NY."

Credit card transactions are processed through a third party provider. Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards are accepted. A non-refundable fee for service will be added to the total bail amount. The credit card holder must be present at the facility with a valid photo ID to complete the transaction.
