"The National Voice of the Bail Agent"
The mission of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States (PBUS) is to provide Information, Education and Representation for the 15,000
bail agents nationwide.
The Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that "excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel or
unusual punishment inflicted." A natural result of this right is the constitutional guarantee of reasonable bail pending trial, a concept which
has been universally affirmed by the Courts of this great Union.
The Professional Bail Agent is the main instrument through which the right to freedom before trial is practically applied. This function imposes
obligations beyond ordinary private enterprise. It imposes grave social responsibility to which the Bail Agent should dedicate herself or himself,
and for which the Bail Agent should prepare diligently. The Bail Agent, therefore, must be zealous in maintaining and improving the standards of the
bail professional and share with fellow Bail Agents a common responsibility for the integrity and honor of the bail profession.
The specific purpose of this corporation is to promote the mutual benefit of its members by disseminating information among members of the
Association about issues of import to the profession and to monitor and attempt to influence governmental decisions that impact the profession.
