The Franklin County NY Jail is a medium-security detention center located at 45 Bare Hill Road Malone, NY which is operated locally by the Franklin 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. Franklin County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, municipalities, the US Marshal's Service and the Malone Police Department who do not have their own long-term lock-up.

Posting Bail in Person

Entrance to the facility will be gained through the main lobby entrance and you will be required to announce yourself to the Control Room upon entering the vestibule.

Anyone wishing to post bail must have photo identification.

If you are paying bail in person using a credit card the credit card holder must be present at the facility and have proper identification. A fact sheet with all the required information will be given to the payee. The payee will then be required to call GPS bail services; a phone is located in the bail receiving room. GPS will verify the credit card information and that there are sufficient funds on the credit card. Once this verification has been made, GPS will give the payee a six (6) digit reference number which you will be required to give to the Intake Officer to allow the facility to verify the transaction.

Once GPS has notified the Correctional Facility that the bail has been paid, the facility will then verify the information; the bail is the correct amount, the card number is correct and the payee is the person named on the card. The payee will be required to sign all paperwork.
