    The majority of them are professionals, however like the clowns in the link I posted, there are exceptions.
    Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

      Collar them. They usually have official placards as well, which are not official. They are civilians who go out and collect their bounty by bringing the perp back to court. Either their money or someone else's.

      If they flash a tin no collar, C summons at most.

      If they say they are police or somehow imply they are police + tin = they need some of their own bail money.

      If they have an official placard with a NYS or Federal seal = Same as above.

          HAHA! As soon as I saw the name of this thread I started thinking about the Ozzy theme song for that terrible show. Lol that guy is ridiculous. That show is more of a comedy than anything with law enforcement. Clowns is right

            Where exactly do you keep running into these people?

                It looks like "English" was a second language for them. I would love to run into one of those characters while on the job. Things could get pretty interesting.

                    I don't have a problem with Bail Enforcement, unless the Agents are POSes themselves. I know in CA you can't be a felon and have to go through a bail course and PC 832 course. If they want to go after fugitives with no department backing in case of a law suit or unlawful allegations, more power to them. I would never do it, but that's just me.

                        Their other website, www.usbda.org is even worse. For one it says they are licensed by the "New York State Bureau of Education". It's actually the New York State Department of Education, and they don't even license bounty hunters; thats the New York State Department of State

                          Short of the long: Bail Enforcement Agents – aka Bounty Hunters are private individuals who go after folks who abscond while on bail. They are sort of like REPO men but for people. They are not security, law enforcement or anything in-between.

                          Long of the short: these folks are sometimes licensed (depending on the state) and go out in search of folks who miss court dates while out on bond. They are working on a reward basis; if they catch an absconder the Bail Bond Company can avoid loosing the full bond to the court of jurisdiction and they get a percentage of the bond in return. It can get convoluted at times….

                          They have a bit of latitude conveyed from a very old Supreme Court Decision though some states have reigned them in a bit through licensing requirements. More often than not the local PD does not get involved in what they do as their work boils down to civil collections.

                          While the bond jumper missed a court date- it is not always that the defendant has a warrant out for them yet. Since they signed on with the bonding company and agreed to meet/maintain certain conditions- their missing a court date or failing to do X,Y or Z can result in a revocation of the bond; which can allow for the defendant to be picked up and surrendered to the courts.

                          Bottom line: they are not the police.
