The public official bond covers the official’s term of office and guarantees that the bonded official will faithfully perform all official duties.

These bonds are the direct result of state statute or other type of public charter and specifically determine the exposure for a given bond.
Examples – Notary, Treasures, Tax Collectors, Sheriffs and Other Public Officials
Miscellaneous bonds are those obligations that do not clearly fall within the scope of the other bond categories. Some of these bonds are required by law and must follow the applicable statutes, ordinances or regulations.
