When someone you care about gets locked up, it's tough to figure out all the ins and outs of jail life. From sending mail to visiting, there are a lot of things to sort out. And getting info about the arrest? Not always easy. That's where this webpage comes in handy. It's here to help you get a handle on how things work at Bosque County TX Jail so you can stay connected and support your loved one behind bars.

The Bosque Co Jail is a detention center located at 804 E Morgan St Meridian, TX which is operated locally by the Bosque County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Bosque County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Meridian Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Texas here.

The Jail can house at maximum capacity 35 inmates both male and female. When the Jail is at max capacity, certain inmates are transferred to other county facilities to be housed on a contract which the Bosque County Sheriff's Office pays. Within the Jail, certain inmates can become a "trustee", which means they can be given certain tasks that can help lessen the sentence the inmate is spending in the Jail. Some "trustees" cook food in the kitchen for other inmates, do housekeeping duties like sweeping and mopping floors, and other light duty tasks.

There is also a "workcrew" which comprises of 4-8 "trustees" that go outside the Jail (supervised by a Peace Officer) and work outside and perform tasks out in the county such as mowing bar ditches, trimming trees near roadways, pick up trash near roadways, help road workers patch potholes, etc.

When someone is brought into the Jail for a criminal charge, they are booked into the Jail facility and are housed in a temporary holding cell. Within 24 hours of being arrested, that person is heard by a magistrate judge, which means they are told what they are being charged with and given an opportunity to bond out of jail, based on the bond given by the magistrate. The bond depends on how severe the crime is being charged to the person. If a person cannot make bond, then they are held in the Jail until they can bond out, or have gone to court for their charges.
