Sheriff's Office Frequently Asked Questions
200 Jackson Street | Bastrop, Texas 78602 | (512) 549-5100 
  • Until recently, we have allowed the public to search for inmates via the County's website.  The search would display all jailings for the individual.  We have been made aware, and confirmed with the Texas Attorney General's Office, that this was not in compliance with current law.  Therefore, we have removed the inmate search function.  Until further notice, you can inquire about inmates by calling the booking desk at (512) 549-5073.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  

    Law enforcement records and court records can still be searched at https://records.co.bastrop.tx.us/publicaccess/default.aspx

  • By Phone: 
    Phones are available in each of the dayrooms for inmates to utilize.  A 15-minute time limit is enforced to allow all inmates access to the telephone.  Phone calls can be made by a calling card purchased by the inmate from commissary or by a loved one calling Securus Technologies to set up an account to receive calls from an inmate.  Should you have questions regarding the Securus phone system or phone call charges, please call (800) 844-6591.

    Phone Cards:
    As an alternative to collect calls, inmates can also purchase phone cards for $10, $20 or $30 through commissary.  Phone cards can be used to reach cell and/or landline phones.
