Bridgeport and Crime
Located in Fairfield County, Bridgeport is bordered by the cities of Trumbull, Fairfield, and Stratford. According to the census in 2010, Bridgeport was home to over 140,000 residents, making it the most populated city in Connecticut. Unfortunately, industrial restructuring and other economic factors have created conditions of poverty, and Bridgeport has been suffering from high crime rates for years. In 2012, it was ranked among Americas top 25 most dangerous cities with an estimated 15 homicides per 100,000 people. In recent years however, old factories and other unused industrial buildings have been converted to apartments, drawing in more residents and bolstering the local economy. Crime has also been on the decline due to the modern tactics employed by Bridgeport officials.
What are the Benefits of a Bail Bonds Service?
If your friend or family member has been convicted of a crime and you cannot afford the bail to get them out of jail, you may want to consider enlisting the help of a bail bond agency. Bail bond agencies are licensed by the state (in this case Connecticut) to provide the bail money required to release the defendant from jail, with a guarantee that the defendant will appear in court on the date of their trial. Oftentimes the bail bonds agency will ask for a percentage of the total bail amount (typically 10-20 percent) as a fee for putting up the money. If you have a friend, family member, or other loved one who has been charged with a crime but you cannot afford bail, give the team at A. Jacobs Bail Bonds a call. We serve Bridgeport, CT and all surrounding areas.
