Bradford County, Florida is among a list of regions within the state that is located quite a distance from the vast metro areas. Starke is the county seat and located southeast of Jacksonville. It’s about an hour drive away. The county was part of the Georgia Southern and Florida Railroad initiative, which was developed in the 1800s. Parts of the original railroad are still found in various spots throughout the county.
Anyone age 18 or over with a valid ID is eligible to post a bond for an inmate’s release in Bradford County. If you are unsure of whether or not your friend or family member has definitely been arrested in Starke or anywhere within the county, visit the county’s inmate locator tool. It may take a few hours for the information to appear, but you will eventually have the ability to find out if the person has been detained.
Most Florida counties set bail amounts based on a uniform bond schedule. This speeds up the process for their eligibility to be released. However, some crimes committed will prevent an inmate from the ability to post bail while awaiting his trial. And other circumstances will require the inmate to stand before the magistrate judge before any type of bail or release is set.
Once bail has been set, the inmate has the option to pay the full amount of bail to the clerk of the court, or to hire a bail bondsman to post a bond for a small portion of the full set bail amount. If the defendant is released while awaiting his trial and abides by all pretrial release requirements, he will be refunded the bail amount (minus court fees) that was paid to the court. But if a bail bondsman is selected for the release, any money paid to a bail bond agency will be non-refundable.
Bail bonds (aka: surety bonds) allow an inmate to be released from jail until his court hearing(s). Instead of the defendant being forced to pay the courts the full amount of bail issued by the court, the bondsman arranges for his release for a fraction of the court’s required bail amount.
For state crimes, the cost for a bond is typically just ten percent of the total bail amount. For federal crimes, a bond will require fifteen percent. For example, if the court demands $15,000 for bail, the defendant would pay a bondsman $1500 for a state bond or $2250 for a federal bond. Any money paid to a bondsman is non-refundable.

For fisherman, boaters, hunters and anyone who enjoys spending time outdoors, Bradford offers plenty of lakes and wildlife areas. But it’s important for anyone planning to take advantage of nature in Florida to become knowledgeable of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regulations. Otherwise, good times could end up with hefty fines (or arrests).
