What Does a Bail Bonds Agent Do?
Many of the prospective clients who contact us have a pretty good idea about what a bail bond is but have little knowledge about what a bail bonds agent does.
A bail bond agent is connected to the bail bonds agency you’re contacting about the possibility of a bail bond. The agent is not connected to the court system or even the police. We are a third party that is fully aligned with the bail bonds agency. The only real connection we have with the police and the court system is that we can post your bail so that you don’t have to sit in jail.
We think that one of the reasons so many people think that bail bond agents are connected to the police is because of how we’re portrayed in movies and television. They always seem to show a bail bond agent trafficking down a fugitive and shoving them into a police car.
The truth is that we rarely have to track down anyone because most of our clients have been extremely good about attending their court dates. On the rare occasions that someone does jump bail, we are usually able to find them fairly quickly. While we can’t legally arrest anyone, after all, we’re not connected to the police, we are allowed to apprehend a fugitive and then take them to the police station where they are arrested.
Since there aren’t many cases that involve a fugitive, the average day for a bail bonds agent involves handling free consultations, answering questions clients have about the terms of their bail, checking in with clients, and making sure they are aware of upcoming court appearances, and writing bail bonds.able, the best thing you can do is contact us. Consultations are available 24/7 and are an excellent source of information.
