Art. 30. The peace bond

A. The peace bond shall be for a specified period, not to exceed six months, and its condition shall be that the defendant will not commit the threatened or any related breach of the peace. The bond shall be for a sum fixed by the magistrate. When fixed by a justice of the peace, the maximum amount of the bond shall not exceed one thousand dollars.

B. If the peace bond is for the purpose of preventing domestic abuse or dating violence, the magistrate shall cause to have prepared a Uniform Abuse Prevention Order, as provided in R.S. 46:2136.2(C), shall sign such order, and shall forward it to the clerk of court for filing, all without delay. The clerk of the issuing court shall transmit the Uniform Abuse Prevention Order to the Louisiana Protective Order Registry, R.S. 46:2136.2(A), by facsimile transmission, mail, or direct electronic input, where available, as expeditiously as possible, but no later than the end of the next business day after the order is filed with the clerk of court.

C. The peace bond obligation shall run in favor of the clerk or judge of the court ordering the bond, in favor of the city when ordered by the mayor of a mayor's court, or in favor of the police jury when the bond is ordered by a justice of the peace. The proceeds shall be disposed of in the manner provided by law.

D. The types of security for a peace bond shall be governed by the bail bond rules set forth in Title VIII, as far as applicable.
