A judicial official such as the court magistrate is the one who determines under what conditions a person will be released from jail.
Other items can be included in the conditions of release such as mandatory fingerprint or DNA samples, restrictions on travel, restrictions from certain people, restrictions on conduct, restrictions on drug/alcohol consumption, or even restrictions on where the defendant can stay.
When the judicial official is determining the conditions of release, they take into account the charges, evidence, family ties, employment, finances, character, mental condition, substance use, how long they have been in the community, prior convictions, and anything else that would make the defendant more of a flight risk or danger to others. The official will also tell the defendant of any penalties for violations, including immediate arrest upon any violation.
