Private surety bail affords the opportunity to reduce jail overcrowding, increase public safety and improve compliance of defendants released into the community while they wait for their case to be disposed of. Any release method should always take into account the best use of taxpayer dollars and public safety. The private surety bail industry continually provides education regarding the public safety benefits it provides. We will continue to advocate for less use of taxpayer-funded Pretrial Release programs that historically have higher failure to appear rates and fugitive rates.
