About Carroll Collins Bail Bonds

the founders of carroll collins bail bonds
In 1961, Carroll “Buddy” Collins was a police officer in Palm Beach County, Florida. Although rewarding, he wanted the freedom and flexibility of working for himself, and that is how Carroll Collins Bail Bonds began. In 1997 Carroll Collins took Lisa M. Johns-Grose under his wing, and educated and trained Lisa to help run his day to day bail related operations.

Today, Carroll Collins Bail Bonds is still operating with 20+ year employee Lisa Johns-Grose at the helm. Lisa is active in the bail industry on both the county & state level. We will be here every step of the way, from your first telephone call to us, until the case is completely resolved. Just like we have since 1961.
