WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Professional Bail Agents of the United States (PBUS) has executed an agreement to utilize wireless tracking technology with bail agents located throughout the United States. PBUS is a professional organization that represents 14,000 bail agents nationwide.

"This will improve the service of bail agents to the criminal justice system and enhance public safety. This benefit is another example of a successful public-private partnership," said Dudley Goolsby, president of PBUS.

Stephen Kreimer, executive director of PBUS commented, "Bail agents, integral partners within the criminal justice system, will now be better able to serve the needs of their communities in monitoring defendants for the purpose of guaranteeing their appearance in court."

The mission of the Professional Bail Agents of the United States is to provide information, education and national representation for all bail agents. Since its founding in 1981, PBUS and its alliance with state associations have advanced the profession through legislative advocacy, professional networking, and continuing education, support of bail agent certification, enhanced liability insurance and development of a code of ethics. PBUS strategically lobbies at the national and state levels to change public policy in favor of commercial bail. Contact is maintained with elected leaders, criminal justice coalitions, federal agencies and other national organizations.
