Bounty Hunter

Location: Vista
Posted on: November 19, 2021

Job Description:

Bounty hunters, also known as fugitive recovery agents or bail enforcement agents, are responsible for the capture and return of individuals that have failed to show up for their appointed day in court. These individuals are now considered fugitives in the eyes of the judicial system.

  • INVESTIGATION AND RESEARCHBounty hunters perform many of the same tasks as police detectives, attempting to locate suspects who may not want to be found. They often use many different channels to determine a suspect's location, such as searching public records or examining social media accounts.
    • INTERVIEWINGBounty hunters often rely on interviews with friends, family, coworkers, and other acquaintances to help locate a fugitive. Like police officers, bounty hunters must communicate effectively with interview subjects, making them feel at ease and asking the right questions to determine a suspect's whereabouts.
      • SURVEILLANCEAfter learning a fugitive's location, bounty hunters may need to conduct surveillance in order to verify a suspect's identity and determine the most effective strategy for apprehension. Successful surveillance requires an eye for detail and the ability to organize and plan effectively.
        • NEGOTIATIONBounty hunters always attempt to apprehend a suspect peacefully, and strong negotiation skills may enable them to convince people to turn themselves in without resistance. Communication and negotiation skills also come into play when interacting with interview subjects and bail bond agencies.
          • SELF-DEFENSEWhile not always necessary, bounty hunters must be prepared to physically pursue and apprehend suspects, which may put them at risk of bodily harm. Therefore, bounty hunters need physical strength and agility as well as self-defense skills. Most bounty hunters are also familiar with firearm use and safety.
            • Investigate FugitivesInvestigation often involves traveling to a fugitive's home, workplace, and usual hangouts to gather information and interview subjects
