Bail Enforcement Agent
Criminal Justice Course for Fugitive Recovery Agent Certification 

A Bail Enforcement Agent tracks down people or property as a representative of financial institutions and bail bondsmen.  In Connecticut, agents need to complete a training course and receive a license before they can practice in a given area. 

Some have backgrounds in law enforcement, while others do not. This work can be challenging and potentially dangerous. Employment opportunities abound for those interested in becoming a licensed bail enforcement agent or bondsman in Connecticut.

Bail Enforcement Agents track down people who have failed to appear in court after paying bail. Such people are said to be “skipping” bail. 

When bail has been paid by a bail bondsman on behalf of the accused, the bail bondsman may hire a nail enforcement agent to bring the fugitive to justice. While bail bondsmen do require collateral to issue loans, sometimes the full loan is not recoverable and the bail bondsman has an interest in getting the money back. Bail enforcement agents seek out and apprehend fugitives to return them to the court,.

This work also requires good observational skills and alertness, as recovery agents need to be able to act quickly in dangerous situations.  Some recovery agents work on their own, while others work for agencies. Typically, they are paid a percentage of the total funds recovered. 

Working for an agency can provide a steady supply of work, as well as benefits, such as use of a company car, but agents employed by agencies also make less per job and this must be balanced when weighing employment options.
