The sex offender must register in the state and in the national sex offender registry. If you want to see who is on the sex offender list maintained by the Douglas County Jail go to the Sheriff’s Website and search the list under the Sex Offenders tab. There is a photo for most offenders. The Missouri Highway State Patrol Sex Offender List is an alternative way to locate someone, if he or she is not on the county list.

    Bail and Bondsman

    As a safety guarantee, the judge sets the bail amount for an arrested person to leave the jail and wait for the trial out of custody. If you are arrested and want to leave custody, you can post the bail as set by the court in cash or in surety. The inmate roster in Douglas County Jail includes details about the type and the amount  for each person’s bail. When you want to bail an inmate out and you don’t own the necessary amount of money, you can borrow the money from a bonding company. The bondsman will post the bail for you and ask for a service fee which is non-refundable. The detainee must show up at court or the bail will be lost.
