Bounty Hunters

La Habra Bounty Hunters

Bounty hunters are also known as fugitive recovery agents, and they often work for bail bonds agencies. They get paid in monetary rewards based upon catching bail jumpers. When they bring in a bail jumper, the bail bond agency pays a percentage of the bail.

Most bounty hunters do not have any particular qualifications unless required by the state they work in. The rights that a bounty hunter has is the right to arrest the bail jumper and the right to enter the bail jumper’s property without a warrant. In some cases, the fugitive recovery agent may even cross state lines to catch the offender.

There are limits put on bounty hunters such as the requirement of a clean background. Some state don’t allow fire arms to be carried. They also cannot enter property belonging to someone other than the offender without a warrant or permission.
