Yes. For whom do you wish to testify? In my jurisdiction, we have a very proactive victim-witness program. They would call a victim to let them know a bond hearing was scheduled, and to ask if you wanted to testify. If you want to testify on behalf of the accused, you should be able to find their attorney with a phone call or two and Google.
