  • New Haven-Meriden, CT (1888PressRelease) September 13, 2022 - 3-D Bail Bonds has been providing bail bonds service to New Haven families since 1997. June 25th marks the company anniversary. Don Toner, Daniel Toner and Andrew (Drew) Bloom opened the first 3-D Bail Bonds office at 910 Albany Ave in Hartford, Connecticut. While the business was located downtown, Dan and Drew mostly went to where the customer was, whether it was a police station, local jail, or other location. They were there for them.

    Unlike the negative connotation about bail and bail bondsmen, the agency has changed Connecticut’s approach to bail in many ways. The right to reasonable bail is a constitutional right, the bail agency is simply the insurance policy securing defendants their appearance in court. The service with the use of a bondsman is cheaper than paying for bail on your own. This fee is regulated by the Department of Insurance and is more affordable than using the ten percent option. 3-D Bail Agents have the ability to bring a loved one back home and allow a family to be reunited again. It’s priceless, bondsman Tawn says. “To see a mom hug her kid after we posted her bond in court can touch anyone. You just never know, what you will see in your shift.”

    Drew is still there for them. As a bondsman and a father, he understands the need for urgent services after a child is arrested. He adds, “we have grown since 1997. We’re now located in East Haven serving New Haven County. We’re minutes from the New Haven Correctional Center. We have offices that span Connecticut, from Stamford to Groton and from Willimantic to New Haven. We’ve been anywhere to everywhere helping families keep their loved one’s home and free while they await a trial.”

    Clients have been rich, they’ve been poor. They have come from loving families and broken homes. Men and women from every walk of life. Mostly they are young. Over 70% of non-violent felonies are committed by people under the age of twenty-five. For first time offenders the ordeal of being arrested is often traumatic. The stress of having to go to jail adds to the tension, both for the defendant and their families. Many families in Hartford can’t afford the cost of bail in full. We’ve helped solve that problem for many families in that situation over the years. Some families can’t even afford the fee they need to pay us. We solved that too by initiating affordable and easy to understand payment plans for our financially stressed clients.

    Historically among small businesses in the United States only 11% of them survive for 25 years. Adding the pros and cons of the bail bonds industry and the legal challenges and limitations within, keeping a bail company alive for over two decades should be considered a lifetime achievement. 3-D Bail Bonds faced many challenges throughout the years. The unexpected passing of owner Don Toner in 2011 marked the agency with tragedy. While Dan and Drew managed to keep bail agents busy, “bail” is one strange industry. The bail business was and still is unpredictable. Many bail agents passed by 3-D Bail Bonds, some started their career with us and then created their own companies.
    Dan and Drew have been proud to have the ability to offer opportunities for young minds to grow their careers at 3-D Bail Bonds. They offer employees training and flexible schedules for office positions. Several employees have gotten married, many have bought homes, had children, raised their families and have been the chief bread winner of their household. Many have been working at 3-D for more than ten years, some as many as twenty.

    Jordan Toner says, “my dad’s success is a result of dedication to making an unpleasant experience as pleasant as humanly possible. He has compassion as a bail agent and employer. He’s spent tireless hours and efforts toward improving every facet of the industry.”

    Business owners Dan and Drew hosted a summer celebration this past August to show their appreciation to their loyal staff and to celebrate such lifetime accomplishment. The party was joined by employees and their families, former employees, and nationwide industry guests.
    3-D Bail Bonds has been an integral part of the local community in other ways as well. They’ve taken part in local initiatives and events. They help people in need in more ways than bail bonds. Some events that 3-D Bail Bonds has hosted to support local nonprofit institutions and communities include toy donations to the National Army in New Haven.

    The main 3-D difference is that owners Dan and Drew truly care about their clients, the client’s families and the bail work they do. This compassionate support is what differentiates 3-D Bail Bonds from our competitors. It is the guiding principle of the agency since its founding. Dan and Drew have worked tirelessly to ensure their services remain affordable to everyone. Today, as they celebrate 25 years in business, 3-D Bail Bonds continue to provide unmatched service at affordable prices. They offer the same outstanding service all over Connecticut.
