Here’s a homemade one for you. This was the 3rd time I had revoked this girls bond. It’s the sequel to the previous “old man revokes stripper’s bond” video (located in BHFH capture videos). I didn’t end up actually revoking her bond once again. The co-signer had changed his mind. Which is fine. I was 100% sure if this girl did skip court that the co-signer would pay the $5,000 bond. Some co-signers you know will never pay you. So I let the decision up to him, that way it keeps him happy and my client happy. Also if he did decide to revoke it, I would not look like the bad guy to our client, the co-signer would. You don’t want a bunch of pissed off inmates talking bad about your business inside the jailhouse. Trust me. Anyways this is a lighter version of arresting someone. She posed no threat and was obviously not going to fight or run or pull a weapon. So enjoy.
You will notice in our video’s that some of them are very calm with no or little confrontation. Which is a far cry from what you see on television. As a bail agent you will have to remember these people you are arresting are your clients. Over the years I have bonded the same people out time and time again. Not to mention their friends and so on. That’s how you make a successful business. I have had people skip bond on me and leave the state and I bonded them back out. Now there are time’s where you have to scream and yell and get rough, you just have to know when. Alot of times I will try to get the co-signer off the bond and still keep the client on bond also. The co-signers will also use your servies again too if treated good.
The majority of bail agent’s salary come from commission made on writing bonds, not on capturing people. I can promise you there are NO FULL time bountyhunters who do nothing at all but hunt people. There simply is no money in that and it takes much too long to try. You will mainly work posting bond’s and collecting commissions and apprehending bond jumper’s as they come along.
