Bail enforcers or bounty hunters are usually hired by bondsmen to locate, arrest, and return the accused person to face their charges in court.
Most bond services are open 24-7 or all hours of jail operation.
If you or a family member was arrested and now needs to post bail, the first step is contacting a bail bondsman near you. Here's what you are going to need in hand:
A release on your “own recognizance” gets the individual arrested out of jail without having to pay bail. The person is on his or her honor to return for the court proceedings. If the person fails to return for trial a bench warrant is issued.
In order to determine if a person is eligible for an “own recognizance” release, a court administrator or judge will conduct an interview (in person or over the phone) while the individual is in custody. The interview provides official with the information needed to make a recommendation to the court after a performing a back ground search and verifying the information provided by the person arrested.
