The concept of Riverside bail bonds enforcement likely has you thinking of Dog the Bounty Hunter. In many cases people assume that bail enforcement agents and bail bondsmen are one in the same. This isn’t exactly an accurate assumption.
Everyone who works in the bail industry is required to be licensed by the California State Department of Insurance. That having been said, you can think of Riverside bail bonds as being an insurance policy of sorts. It is a piece of paper that insures the actions of the defendant, namely, that they will return to court when required. If a defendant is out on a $25,000 bond and decided to skip bail, the bondsman has one of two options: hire a bail enforcement agent to catch them and return them to jail, or pay $25,000 to the court as a penalty.
If a defendant skips bail their bondsman will make every attempt to contact them on their own. They may call the person who signed the Riverside bail bonds agreement, place calls to the listed references, or even attempt to reach the defendant at their place of work. If these efforts are unsuccessful the bondsman may have no other choice but to hire an enforcement agent. This can turn out to be an expensive situation for the person who signed the Riverside bail bonds agreement. They will be the one who needs to pay for that expense. If collateral has been posted to secure the bond, its return to the person who posted it will now be in jeopardy.
