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.

2020 INDUSTRY UPDATES

REFERENDUM: NO ON SB-10

“The future of our industry and your business depends on the defeat of SB 10 on Election Day, this November 3!

We must defeat this reckless law, which eliminates the surety bail industry and our livelihoods, and puts millions of Californians unnecessarily in harm’s way.  

We need your help – today. Sign up and join the coalition here  and hit the “Donate” link to give at least $100.

PLEASE also help us get local leaders and groups on board  – Sheriffs, DA’s, local elected officials, business leaders and groups and others.

We must prevail and we need to show a growing and diverse coalition who can help us urge California voters to VOTE NO ON THE REFERENDUM AND REJECT SB 10.

Sign up today.

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.
