Bail Bulletins & Other Guidance

The Division issues bulletins to provide guidance as to how the Division applies Nevada’s bail laws.  This helps bail licensees understand the laws regulating the business of bail.  Below is a link to the bail bulletins that have been issued by the Division: 

Bulletin 18-002:  Collateral in Connection with a Bail Transaction (June 12, 2018)

Bulletin 18-003:  Collections & Charges in Connection with a Bail Transaction (June 12, 2018)

Bulletin 18-004:  Notice of Withdrawal of Bulletins 13-006, 11-006, and 97-002 (June 13, 2018)

The Attorney General’s Office may publish opinions that provide legal interpretations about laws.  Attorney General Opinions (“AGOs”) are persuasive authority, and may provide additional insight into the way the Division interprets Nevada’s bail laws.  AGOs offer guidance and are not law. 

Attorney General Opinion No. 2013-05 (July 24, 2013):  Bail; Bonds; Fees: Nevada law does not allow bail agents to collect renewal premiums held open by a court for more than one year.
