The movies pretty much always portray things a certain way–a person skips bail and the person running the bail bond agency hunts them down. But is this accurate? While it makes for a handful of pretty interesting and entertaining movies, the answer is that no, it really isn’t accurate.

More often than not, the truth of the matter is that the bond agent is simply the person providing you with a loan so that you can get out of jail, whereas a bounty hunter is employed if a person skips their bail. Sometimes the bounty hunter is on staff at the bond agency and other times bondsmen rely on someone to do a bit of freelance work.

Allow Us To Elaborate

According to, “Bounty hunters work with bail bondsman in order to track, locate, apprehend, and return fugitive criminals to the criminal justice system.” They go on to state that “in their function of assisting [a] bail bondsman, bounty hunters help to ensure that the bail bonds system continues to function” and that they “also help the communities they work in by bringing fugitives back into the criminal justice system to face their charges.”

In other words, although they are often considered to be one and the same, bondsmen and bounty hunters in fact have different jobs, but they work together to accomplish similar tasks. It’s not all that different than, say, two workers in a store. One might work in the electronics department and the other might specialize in book sales. Although they don’t do the same thing, they work together for the good of the company.
