Release without bail; imposition of conditions; arrest for violation of condition.
1. Upon a showing of good cause, a court may release without bail any person entitled to bail if it appears to the court that it can impose conditions on the person that will adequately protect the health, safety and welfare of the community and ensure that he will appear at all times and places ordered by the court.
2. In releasing a person without bail the court may impose such conditions as it deems necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of the community and to ensure that he will appear at all times and places ordered by the court, including, without limitation, any condition set forth in subsection 8 of NRS 178.484.
3. Upon a showing of good cause, a sheriff or chief of police may release without bail any person charged with a misdemeanor pursuant to standards established by a court of competent jurisdiction.
4. Before a person may be released without bail, he must file with the clerk of the court of competent jurisdiction a signed document stating that:
(a) He will appear at all times and places as ordered by the court releasing him and as ordered by any court before which the charge is subsequently heard;
(b) He will comply with the other conditions which have been imposed by the court and are stated in the document;
(c) If he fails to appear when so ordered and is taken into custody outside of this state, he waives all his rights relating to extradition proceedings; and
(d) He understands that any court of competent jurisdiction may revoke the order of release without bail and may order him into custody or require him to furnish bail or otherwise ensure the protection of the health, safety and welfare of the community or his appearance.
5. If a jurisdiction incurs any costs in returning a person to the jurisdiction to stand trial, the person failing to appear is responsible for paying those costs as restitution.
6. An order issued pursuant to this section that imposes a condition on a person who is released without bail must include a provision ordering a law enforcement officer to arrest the person if he has probable cause to believe that the person has violated a condition of his release.
