Standard Release Procedure

Once all charges/sentences have been cleared, an inmate will be transported to one of seven drop off locations (Auburn, Burien, Des Moines, Federal Way, SeaTac and Tukwila) by a SCORE transport officer with their property. The drop-offs are not scheduled and happen throughout the day.  You can sign up for inmate release notification through VINE on the inmate roster.


Lobby/Family Ride Releases

Once all charges/sentences have been cleared, an adult may come to SCORE lobby to pick up the inmate.  Upon arrival, the adult must check in with reception staff and present valid photo identification (Government Issued Photo ID or Passport).  The adult cannot leave the premises without notifying reception staff.  An inmate cannot be released more than four hours before his/her sentence is completed.


Bail/Bond Release Procedures

Once bail has been posted, it may take as much as two to six hours before the person in custody is released.  Release times will vary depending on the day of the week, time of day and how many other releases are pending at the time the bail is received. We appreciate your patience and understanding of the importance of taking steps to ensure that only the correct individuals are released.


Property Releases

Release of inmate property can only be requested Monday through Friday from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the reception desk.
