If you ever find yourself needing to know who is in the County’s hoosegow, whether you are looking for a loved one or just snooping, you won’t have to call. That public information is now at your fingertips and you don’t have to bother a bonding clerk to find it out.
Here is how you search those records: First, one would go the Fort Bend County website: www.fort-bend.tx.us then look along the drop down menus across the top of the page – click on Department and go down to Sheriff’s Office. Click on the Sheriff’s Office link. Under the heading Troy E. Nehls, sheriff go to the last link titled: Jail- public information inquiry. BINGO!
In the appropriate search box enter the person’s name and or date of birth and hit enter. Before your eyes will appear the information available, if any, on the person you just searched. This handy little tool has been brought to the citizens of Fort Bend County in an effort to increase the productivity of the bonding clerks at the county jail by reducing the amount of phone calls they have to answer just to tell the caller whether the person they are looking for is there and the amount of their bond.
Now everyone can look for themselves and the bonding clerks can complete bonds far more timely. Again, another step in providing the public with the services they pay for.
