CALIFORNIA BAIL AGENTS ASSOCIATION TAKES STRONG STAND AGAINST MISCONDUCT

“As vital members of the criminal justice system, we demand the highest level of professionalism and conduct from our bail agents. No exceptions.”

SANTA ANA, CA — Following yesterday’s reported arrest of two bail bondsmen for alleged violations of state bail license regulations, the California Bail Agents Association (CBAA) issued the following statement: “Professional bail agents are licensed instruments through which the right to freedom before trial is practically, legally and safely applied. The role we play within the criminal justice system requires us to accept serious social and public safety responsibilities beyond those of ordinary private businesses. We do not condone violations of state bail regulations or other state law by any California bail agent, and we fully support local law enforcement in their thorough investigation and the District Attorneys’ Offices in their aggressive prosecution of those found guilty of these acts — for the protection of consumers, as well as the future of our profession. As vital members of the criminal justice system, CBAA demands the highest level of professionalism and conduct from our bail agents — no exceptions.”
