Make Payments Simply.
The Columbia County Sheriff's Office now accepts credit and debit card payments through GovPayNet. Payments can be made with a major credit, debit or prepaid debit card, including:
Payments can be made for:
*Note: Credit/Debit card payments for Concealed Pistol Licenses, fingerprinting, photocopies or payment of civil process fees must be transacted in person at the Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
GovPayNet is a privately contracted credit and debit card processor under an agreement with the agency intended to receive payment. If the GovPayNet payment is bail or bail related, GovPayNet is the merchant of record, providing a remote cash bail processing service. For all other payments, the collecting agency is the merchant. If you have any questions about GovPayNet's role, please discuss them with the contracting agency.
Note: Bail/bond amounts are subject to change. Please contact the Columbia County Sheriff's Office at 509-382-2518 to confirm these amounts.
We contract with other facilities to hold some inmates. Although some inmates may be listed, they may be housed elsewhere on our charges, or they may be out on Electronic Home Monitoring. Please confirm their location with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office at 509-382-2518 before visitation.
