    A question I have about Bounty Hunting Statute I am

    basically from what I read it states that it is not allowed in this state?!

    Although there are quite a few that skip bail, and I believe that the laws change almost as quickly as we speak of this issue.

    I was just wondering if you could clarify this issue better if at all possible I would greatly appreciate it.

    I am interested in this type of work and have read further in the forum about how to go about getting involved in this type of work,
    but I would greatly appreciate your answer!

    Thanks!

    If anything in the Soth suburbs of Chicago, Illinois comes available please keep me in mind. This sounds like something I would love to do. I am not sure of the requirements for this position, any help would be nice. Eager to get started.

    I would like to know if it's possible to be a bounty hunter here in Illionis. The reading was not so clear. Just a Yes or No will do.

    Re: ILLINOIS LAW: Bounty Hunter

    There are 5 states that have out lawed bail enforcement, since they have in effect, outlawed commercial bail. Citizens can post bond directly with the courts in these jurisdictions.

    The five states are Illinois, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Oregon and Kentucky.

    The UCEA also applies to transporting fugitives and all states and territories have signed this agreement but two SC and MO.

    Hope this clarifies,

    Scott

    Re: ILLINOIS LAW: Bounty Hunter

    So this law means that I can't catch a Fugitive who fled from a one state to this state, Right?
    Can I at least get a warrant? What should I do legally? I mean with out getting in trouble. I just can't let a Bail Bondsman lose money for that! >

    Cool Re: ILLINOIS LAW: Bounty Hunter

    hello to all FRA's.
    I just got a contract to p/u a skip from COLO that has been reported by his mother to be in Chicago at this time. He went to OK, then to MO, then to TENN, and now is in Chicago and the bondsman has paid , and wants him back so he can petition the court for his money. Not a violet person. With no comm. bail in Chicago, can I legally seize him with a fugitive from justice warrant without problems?
    I would think the proper way to do this would go to the local precinct with paperwork and ask for assistance or get their blessing to apprehend and then transport out of there post haste. Bondsman does not think he will be a trouble risk or object to transport once in custody.
    How about some great words of wisdom from you ..........ASAP as I would like to start now.. Thanxxx, Ted
