It is not easy to become a bail bondsman in Colorado, whose licenses are supervised by Colorado’s Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), Division of Insurance. To become a bail bondsman, you must complete 24 hours of course work on criminal and bail bonding laws and procedures, and you must pass a written test on those subjects. Also, you must prove that you have had no criminal convictions, which requires the submission of fingerprints.
After you are licensed, the best way to learn about the business is to work under the tutelage of an experienced bail bondsperson. By doing this, you will learn what each jail wants in terms of paperwork and procedures. Keep in mind that just because you have a bail bonding license does not mean you will know what each court or jail house will require in terms of local procedures.
Becoming a licensed bail bond agent can be lucrative and rewarding. However, issues with difficult persons in your business can result in complaints against your bail bond license. Part Two of this series discusses the procedures for license complaints, how you should respond to them, and why you need a lawyer to help in the process.
