Leading the fight to preserve Surety Bail for bail agents in California

"The specific mission of the CBAA is to serve and improve the California bail industry through education and discourse with public officials and others that affect the important role of bail in the administration of criminal justice in California."
CBAA Mission Statement

WELCOME TO CBAA

Bail, the amount of money a defendant must post to be released from jail pending trial, is a right guaranteed to all by the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Here in the Golden State, Professional Bail agents act as liaisons between courts and defendants, by providing the funds necessary to guarantee the defendant will return to court for trial and future court proceedings.

The California Bail Agents Association, more commonly known as CBAA, is a state-wide collection of these professionals.

The specific mission of the CBAA is to serve and improve the California bail industry through education and discourse with public officials and others that affect the important role of bail in the administration of criminal justice in California.

ANNOUNCES THE END OF CASH BAIL

George Gascón embarked Monday on a plan to reimagine criminal prosecutions in Los Angeles County, announcing sweeping policy changes he’ll make as district attorney that include an end to cash bail, a ban on prosecutors seeking enhanced prison sentences and showing leniency to many low-level offenders.

The dramatic reversals of deeply ingrained, traditional law enforcement strategies in the nation’s largest district attorney’s office, also will include a review of thousands of old cases to determine whether lighter sentences or prisoner releases should be sought, Gascón said in a speech during his swearing-in ceremony.

SPONSORSHIP HAS IT'S PRIVILEGES

Sponsors are the life blood of an organization. They form the backbone upon which many organizations build and finance their operations. At CBAA, we have managed to avoid taking this route but in these difficult and uncertain times, it is incumbent upon us to step up on the services most needed by our members, and this requires our organization to become rock solid.
