Bronx Cash Bail Window Finally Open 24/7

Bronx Criminal Court (thisistheBronX)

According to Bronx justice News, a cash-bail window has finally opened at the Bronx Criminal Courthouse after the city missed the deadline to launch a 24-hour window eight months ago.

Even though a 2017 city law passed requiring a 24-hour cash bail option to be open within a half-mile of courthouses, this particular one has only been open from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m.

This expanded hours comes after years of backlash from prisoner advocates and a public defense organization. While 75% of people make bail one week after detention at Rikers Island Jails, there are thousands that are left incarcerated because of the bail process.

Initially the Bronx window was supposed to open last New Year’s Day but advocates say the delay was caused by a Department of Corrections decision to focus first on opening a window in Queens.

The city does have an online bail payment system which allows the use of credit and debit cards.
