Investigating Infidelity

Hiring a private investigator and discussing a possible affair is difficult, at best.  We assure you that we are committed to using the utmost discretion in providing investigative services that will give you peace of mind to move forward with your life while maintaining your dignity.

Fugitive Recovery

In California, the Bounty-hunter Act requires the completion of 40hrs of Power of Arrest certified by Peace Officer Standards and Training [P.O.S.T], a Power of Arrest course certified by Bureau of Security and Investigative Services [BSIS] and 12hrs education relating to duties and responsibilities of a Bail License certified by Department of Insurance [DOI] to become a Fugitive Recovery Agent.

Although bail enforcement in California does not require a license, it does require this extensive course work, in addition to either the 12 hour bail pre-licensing class or a Private Investigator License. Our investigative staff meets and exceeds those requirements.  Investigators must carry a copy of their certification on their person when performing bail enforcement. If a firearm is carried, the B.S.I.S. Open & Exposed Permit, or a CCW [if the weapon is concealed] is required. Safety is our top priority.

Skip Tracing

Skip Tracing is the electronic means of tracking down a suspect.

Rules to follow

Bail fugitive recovery agents must be 18 years old, have no felony convictions, complete a specified training courses, and notify local law enforcement of their intent to apprehend a bail fugitive no more than 6 hours before doing so.

They must have written authorization from the bond agent when making an arrest, and cannot forcibly enter any premises, except pursuant to certain existing provisions of law governing arrest by a private person.

Fugitive recovery agents cannot represent themselves as law officers, or wear badges or uniforms that a reasonable person might mistake for a government agency.

All fugitive recovery agents must carry with them a certification of completion of required courses and training programs.

Out of state fugitive recovery agents must be licensed in their home states, or be licensed bail agents.

Private detectives need not obtain a separate fugitive recovery agent license to operate in the state, but GSI feels the added education enables our fugitive recovery agents to be more informed and minimize liability for our clientele.

In addition, fugitive recovery agents or a bond agent who captures defendant in California must go through extradition procedures to transport him interstate. Cal. Penal Code § 847.5 (1995 West); Ouzts v. Maryland Nat’l Ins. Co., 505 F.2d 547 (9th Cir.1974).

After an arrest of a defendant on bail, the surety must deliver him to the court or police within 48 hours of the arrest if it occurs within California; if the arrest occurs out of state, the surety must deliver the defendant within 48 hours of their entering California. Cal. Penal Code § 1301.
