Bond Desk Tour
The Tarrant County Bond Menu consists of a Main Menu:
And a sub menu (option #40 on main menu):
TARRANT COUNTY BOND DEPARTMENT MENU
MAIN MENU: 01 FIND PERSON
This screen should be self-explanatory. It allows the user to search for a subject by Name, Race, Sex,
Height, Weight, Date of Birth, DL#, SSN, SID#, or FBI#. Results are then displayed below, if any.
If any match is made, it will be indicated what information matched in the –MATCH- column.
Instead of having to conduct multiple searches on the different types of information, it would be nice if
the user could simply enter all the information and search once.
MAIN MENU: 02 JAIL LIST
This screen allows the user to search for subjects that are currently in custody. It allows the user to
search for a subject by Name, Location, Race, Sex, Status, Agency, TDC, etc. Results are then displayed
below, if any.
MAIN MENU: 04 CASE/BOOKING SUMMARY
This screen is used by the user to search by CID and is usually accessed once a subject is found on the 02
screen. It displays a comprehensive list of the subject’s cases and booking history with Tarrant County.
After booking, PC charges appear in the lower section and filed cases appear in the top section. From
this screen the user can view all cases, see if there are any active warrants, holds, or conditions, and
dates and times charges were booked in/out. Other screens are accessed by simply entering their screen
number on the selection line of the booking being referenced.
MAIN MENU: 05 BOOK IN
This screen is used by the user to book the charges in and out of the system. The bond desk uses a
special code in the Booking Agency field which automatically books the charge out at the same time it
was booked in. The Status field relates to the level of the charge (Felony or Misdemeanor). When the
Offense Code is filled out, the charge automatically populates. The user only completes applicable fields
on this screen and utilizes the fields below for wording which is merged onto other screens.
CITY BOND NBK BB28 750.00 BOND
NBK 030512 IC/CHG ARLINGTON PD 1172222 RNW FAXED
032312/ORIG BOND SENT TO SUSP FILE/DMM
091712/ORIG BOND SENT TO PURG FILE/RR
100912/ORIG BOND SENT TO COURT/RR
This shows type of bond, NBK showing bond, bond code, amount of bond, and POA# if applicable
Bond date, where subject was in custody, whose charge it was, service or warrant #, who processed
bond, and showing the bond was faxed
Executed bond shows being received back by mail, filed, and ultimately being sent to the court
MAIN MENU: 06 BRWS BOOKING / UPDT BOND INFO
When processing the bond, the user opens this screen initially to enter the type of bond being
processed. Additionally, the bond code is entered in the BOND INFO 01: field. After generating the bond
number on another screen, the bond numbered is merged into the BOND INFO 03: field. If the bond is
ever transferred (from another screen), an entry is merged into the BOND INFO 02: field. If a bond is
ever voided, the user will remove the bond number from the BOND INFO 03: field so that it is not
erroneously attached to a filed case.
MAIN MENU: 07 PERSON & ALIAS
This screen is used in order to add a subject to the system, creating the CID#. It is updated as needed
and shows when the last update was done and by whom.
MAIN MENU: 08 CASE DISPLAY
This screen is used to either search by case, or as a read-only for all information regarding a particular
case.
MAIN MENU: 09 BOOKING COMMENTS
This screen is used to find information or enter comments regarding a particular booking. This screen is
also where the user will enter information to track the physical location of a bond. As stated earlier,
here is where you will find miscellaneous comments as well as the comments below, for example:
CITY BOND NBK BB28 750.00 BOND
NBK 030512 IC/CHG ARLINGTON PD 1172222 RNW FAXED
032312/ORIG BOND SENT TO SUSP FILE/DMM
091712/ORIG BOND SENT TO PURG FILE/RR
100912/ORIG BOND SENT TO COURT/RR
MAIN MENU: 10 OFFENSE GROUP SELECT
This screen allows a user to search for a specific offense code or for a specific charge by searching the
actual offense code. Each category shown enters a screen with offense codes that fall under that
corresponding category.
It would be helpful if there was the ability to search alphabetically.
MAIN MENU: 11 UPDATE/BROWSE EXISTING BONDS
This screen is initially a search screen which allows the user to search for a bond by case#, warrant#,
arrest#, or bond code. It will also search by bond#, in order to open up to be edited, transferred, or view
the history. After searching the bond# for 1125100, the result was:
MAIN MENU: 11 UPDATE/BROWSE EXISTING BONDS (CONT.)
When an “S” is entered on the selection line of the bond, this screen opens:
Here, the user can update the bond status and enter in a corresponding remark. This is also the screen
that is used during the process of transferring bonds and editing any information that may have been
inputted erroneously during processing.
This screen also opens automatically after the 06 screen when processing a bond. During that process,
depending on what type of bond is being processed, certain fields will be filled out such as: COUNTY (OC
bonds), CITY PD (ticket bonds), bondsman, and bond amount. For Cash bonds and Fines, the PAID BY
fields are completed. After pressing F10, the bond number is generated and shown in a message at the
top of the screen. The user will then continue on to the appropriate print screen depending on the bond
type (this includes fines).
Obviously there is a comment field available if the user wishes to include any comments.
MAIN MENU: 11 UPDATE/BROWSE EXISTING BONDS (CONT.)
When an “H” is entered on the selection line of the bond, this screen opens:
This screen is referenced as a read-only in order to view the history of a bond from ISSD (posted) to its
disposition.
MAIN MENU: 15 PRINT BOND SUPPLEMENT
After the bond# is generated, the user will open this screen to print the bond. Here, the printer is
chosen, notary’s initials entered if necessary, conditions added, and marked for OC bond certification of
surety/information.
MAIN MENU: 16 PRINT RELEASE FORM
After a fine is processed, the user will open this screen to print the release form for those in our custody.
Here, the user must enter their name and the printer.
MAIN MENU: 17 PRINT MISCELLANEOUS RECEIPT
This screen prints automatically when the 16 screen is bypassed.
MAIN MENU: 20 COSTMGT COST MAINTENANCE
This screen is accessed by the user for read-only purposes in order to calculate the correct amount on a
particular Capias.
MAIN MENU: 30 IDENTIFICATION
The following screens are used when the user has created a CID# and the subject is present.
MAIN MENU: 31 PERSONAL DESCRIPTORS I
MAIN MENU: 32 PERSONAL DESCRIPTORS II
MAIN MENU: 33 EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION
MAIN MENU: 35 TRANSFER: CA ===> CA BOND
This screen is used by the Bond Desk Supervisor to transfer bonds from 1 case to another. The only
other person in the Sheriff’s Department who has this capability is the Support Services Captain.
The bond must be in an ISSD status before transferring. So, the status is checked before this is done. If
the status is not ISSD, the person conducting the transfer will update the status before transferring the
bond. The requests for these transfers are received from the courts.
MAIN MENU: 39 DISPOSITION/ACTION TABLE LIST
This screen is accessed by the user as a read-only reference area.
TARRANT COUNTY BOND DEPARTMENT SUB MENU
SUB MENU: 05 BOND CLERK LOG OFF
Initially, the user will LOG IN to the system and enter their shift beginning time and a bag# that will hold
the shift’s cash that was taken in on their shift. Here, they log out. This screen breaks down the bonds
they processed during their shift. Two additional screens also print out that are unable to be displayed.
They break down the cash bonds and the fines. These screens are necessary for accounting and auditing
reasons.
These screens will be covered in detail by the Bail Bond Board Secretary, who is the main user.
SUB MENU: 21 BOND FILE MAINTENANCE
SUB MENU: 22 BONDSMAN LIST
SUB MENU: 23 BONDS BY BONDSMAN
SUB MENU: 24 BOND TOTALS BY BONDSMAN
SUB MENU: 27 CHANGE BONDSMAN ON BOND
This screen is used to change the bondsman on a specific bond. The bond# and new bondsman is
entered. The user is prompted to make sure information is correct, and then the change is made.
SUB MENU: 28 CHANGE BOND TYPE
This screen is used when the type of bond needs to be changed from 1 type to another. The bond# is
entered and the new bond type is selected. The user is then prompted to make sure information is
correct, and then the change is made.
As a registered user, I would need the ability to transmit information to the LiveScan. The above
program currently transmits information from the current system to LiveScan. This allows the user to
simply bring up the subject information in LiveScan by searching for the TRN number. This greatly cuts
down on the amount of time it takes to fingerprint a subject.
