A Guide to Posting Bail in a Pandemic, Hartford, Connecticut

Jails and prisons are hot spots for COVID-19 outbreaks, which makes posting bail for a friend or family member as soon as possible more important than ever. Unfortunately, many Connecticut courts are shut down or have instituted safety requirements that can make bailing out a loved one even more complex and confusing. If someone you care about has been arrested in Hartford, here is some information you should know about posting bail.

What Are the New Procedures?

The Hartford Police, Connecticut State Police, and Hartford Correctional now allow just one person at a time to enter the lobby. To minimize contact and control the spread of the virus, some facilities ask that only the bail bondsman enters the building, so you may have to wait outside.

If you do visit, officers may take your temperature before entering the building. Anyone with a fever over 100.4 F likely won’t be allowed inside.

Will Some Courts Shut Down?

posting bailMost courts in Connecticut are still closed, but some are still offering high-priority services like arraignments, bail bonds, and domestic cases. Most of these hearings are being conducted remotely, so you won’t have to worry about being exposed to possible infection.

However, knowing who to contact can be a challenge, so it’s best to have a professional guide you through the process.
