All Agents Possessing Arrest Powers Should be Regulated by State Governments


Some states have loopholes where persons may act with arrest powers but not be licensed by a state jurisdiction to perform such tasks. All states should regulate and allow for the recovery of bail jumpers by regulated bail recovery agents and we should look at creating model bail recovery agent licensure to ensure reciprocity. No state should allow someone without a license to conduct an arrest of a defendant. In addition, this should include specific training requirements designed to make the process of arrest as safe as possible.

4th Generation of Bail Reform

TitleDescriptionVersionSizeDate addedDownload
The 4th Generation of Bail Reform Thirty four years after the federal government embarked on this grand risk-based bail experiment, an experiment which no one thought constitutional at the time, it is now time instead for a fourth generation of bail reform.
