    [b]All bail runners must be licensed. N.C. Gen. Stat. §§ 58-71-40. Runner must be over 18, no felony convictions, a resident of the state, have necessary training and experience., N.C. Gen. Stat. 58-71-50.

    Must take 20 hours of education for a license. N.C. Gen. Stat. § 58-71-71.

    Must take an examination. N.C. Gen. Stat. § 58-71-70. Bounty hunters only can work for one bonding company (same as Florida). N.C. Gen. Stat. § 58-71-65 (1996).

    Bondsmen and runners cannot enter the homes of third parties to apprehend a fugitive. State v. Mathis, 509 S.E.2d 155 (N.C. 1998).

    Hmm, does NC offer Reciprocity?

    I am curious to know if there is reciprocity allowed with certain states in order to conduct Fugitive Recovery?

    John,
    I did my pre-licensing through the NC Bail Agents Association. They have a class every month or so on the NC State campus.

    Re: NORTH CAROLINA LAW: Recovery Agent

    From Online Resources:
    Bounty Hunters seem to fall under the title of “Runner” in North Carolina law, defined as “a person employed by a bail bondsman for the purpose of assisting the bail bondsman in presenting the defendant in court when required, or to assist in apprehension and surrender of defendant to the court…” With the Bail Bondsman as the person who relates directly with the courts, the Fugitive Recovery Agent is therefore employed to assist the bail bondsman. Bounty Hunting is, then, perfectly legal in North Carolina and is governed by a number of provisions.

    How to Become a Bounty Hunter in North Carolina

    To become a Bounty Hunter in North Carolina an individual must meet a number of requirements, listed below. Additionally, they must be employed by a licensed bail bondsman. In order to do so it is important to become educated on local laws and regulations as well as properly trained in safe and effective skip tracing techniques. Only then will a bond company feel comfortable trusting you to recover fugitives that have skipped bail. This education is also important in preparing for the Runner’s examination, a comprehensive test of your knowledge of the bail bond business. Education is essential to becoming a bounty Hunter in North Carolina.

    North Carolina Bounty Hunter Licenses and Requirements

    In order to apply for a Bounty Hunting or “runner” license in North Carolina a number of basic requirements must be met. One must be at least 18, a resident of the state, have no outstanding bail bond obligations, no felony convictions, and not be disqualified by the state in any other manner. They must also be sponsored by a bond agent and be employed by only one professional bondsman who is responsible for their actions. This is another reason that a prospective Fugitive Recovery Agent must prove their abilities and trustworthiness to prospective employers by showing that they have excellent knowledge of local laws and safe fugitive recovery techniques. Lastly, in order to obtain a license, 20 hours of Bounty Hunter education is required. Following this education, you must pass an examination administered by the Department of Insurance ranging from prohibited practices to bond limits and terminology.
