For the second consecutive year, Orange County Bail Bonds has been selected for the 2010 Best of Newport Beach Award in the Bail Bonding category by the USCA.
“The USCA ‘Best of Local Business’ Award Program recognizes outstanding local businesses throughout the country,” the USCA states in its June 9 press release. “Each year, the USCA identifies companies that they believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community.”
An award plaque from USCA honors the achievement for Orange County Bail Bonds. Established in 1963, Orange County Bail Bonds is a family owned and operated company. Specializing in intimate, discreet, and personal service, this small company has been serving Southern California families in times of crisis for 45 years.
Owner of Orange County Bail Bonds, Bob Miller, explains the company’s philosophy as a responsible business that “is proud to be part of the solution” in the criminal justice system.
“Bail is guaranteed by the 8th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and ensures the court that a criminal defendant will appear for trial. If the defendant does not appear, the bondsman must apprehend the defendant and return him to court or pay the full bond amount,” Miller said.
Co-owner Anne Miller of Orange County Bail Bonds adds, “Without the option of bail, courts and police departments would be tied down with issuing and executing fugitive warrants. Those in the bail industry execute and apprehend fugitives at their own expense; whereas courts and police departments use taxpayers’ money.”
With its main office located in the Civic Center Law Building in Santa Ana, Orange County Bail Bonds is located directly across the street from the Orange County Main Jail and the Santa Ana City Jail. In addition to Newport Beach Bail Bonds and Santa Ana, Orange County Bail Bonds serves dozens of cities including Anaheim, Fullerton, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Mission Viejo, Costa Mesa, and Huntington Beach.
The USCA award has special significance to Orange County Bail Bonds, but even more so because it was received for the second consecutive year. The USCA reports: “Nationwide, only 1 in 70 (1.4 percent) 2010 Award recipients qualified as two-time Award Winners. Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2010 USCA Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the USCA and data provided by third parties.”
The USCA operates as a national organization with its roots in local communities. “The USCA is a New York City based organization funded by local businesses operating in towns, large and small, across America. The purpose of USCA is to promote local business through public relations, marketing and advertising,” its press release states.
