Hartford is Connecticut's Capital City. It's not the largest city here, though, that honor falls to Bridgeport. Hartford has a population of approximately 125,000, but retains a small town atmosphere. It's generally a friendly town, and a great place to visit.
BailCo can assist you with your bail bond needs at four locations in Hartford: the Hartford Police Department, the Superior Court in GA 14 (Geographical Area 14), the Hartford Correctional Center (also known as HCC or "The Meadows"), and the Connecticut State Police Facility Troop H.
You can post a bond at both the Hartford Police Department and Troop H 24/7. However, depending on when the defendant was arrested they may be transported to the court if you do not act quick enough. If this happens, don't worry-- the bond can still be posted at court, and ultimately the correctional facility (jail). However, the bond amount can change, which may not be advantageous to your needs. If you need to post a bond at either Troop H or Hartford Police Department please call us and our helpful staff will make arrangements for you. When you call we will ask a few questions to make sure you have everything necessary to post the bond. The next step is to meet; typically, we will meet you at the front lobby of the police department to facilitate the posting of the bond. However, at Hartford Police Department the bond itself is posted in a different part of the facility. There is a photo below. Posting a bond Hartford PD can be a very slow process and it often take hours to post a bond there. Troop H is very fast and efficient-- like all of the State Police facilities.
The operating hours of Hartford Courthouse GA 14 are 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. Doors open at 8:30 A.M. Arraignments do not usually occur until 12:00 P.M. but they can take place later in the day. If you need to post a bond at The Superior court in GA 14 (Geographical Area 14), that means either the defendant has not posted the bond at the police department or they were being held in jail. In the case of being transported directly from the police department, they will appear in court on the next business day for their arraignment. At the arraignment, the defendant is advised of several constitutional rights by the presiding judge and is required to enter a plea. Usually the defendant is advised to plea “not guilty,” after which the matter is set for a date for the pre-trial hearings. During the arraignment, the judge will set bond. If they do not have a record and the case is not violent in nature, then most likely the defendant will be released on a written promise to appear on all subsequent court dates.
A judge will sometimes order a bond with or without surety. If the defendant fails to appear then their bond could be revoked, and they may be held in custody without bond. The judge may require a security bond; the defendant has the option of posting 7 to 10 percent (depending on size) of the bond with BailCo; as bondsmen we assure the defendant’s appearance in court, and the defendant is released. If needed, you can do a payment plan. Click here to calculate the deposit amount for your bond.
If a defendant is held in custody after arraignment, the judge must review the bond status after 45 days.
Hartford Correctional Center is one 5 jails and of 18 correctional facilities in Connecticut,United States. The correctional center is located on 177 Weston Street. initially run by Richard Wezowicz; the current warden is Ned McCormick.
Hartford Correctional Center (commonly referred to as HCC) can hold up to 984 inmates. It was opened in 1977, replacing Seyms Street Jail, which had become notorious for its ‘deplorable’ living conditions. (https://connecticuthistory.org/the-deplorable-history-of-hartfords-seyms-street-jail/).
Hartford Correctional Center is among the most restrictive and difficult places to post a bond. Typically, you can post a bond from 8:30 P.M. until 9:30 P.M. These hours are subject to change due to holidays, weekends, staff availability and various emergencies that occur within the facility. If you need to post a bond at the correctional facility, it's best to call well in advance so we may research the bond and schedule based on the requirements of the bond. Bonds usually take several hours to post and can take much longer at Hartford Correctional Center; please plan appropriately. In an effort to save you waiting time at the facility, we may have you fill out the necessary documents at our office or another location convenient for you. This can save several hours of waiting at the facility for records to provide us the mittimus and process the release documents. Upon release, the defendant will be released out of a sally port located on Fishfry Street adjacent to the jail.
