Question: How to become a Bounty Hunter in North Carolina?
Answer: Bounty Hunting in itself is not legal in North Carolina. In order to preform or engage in duties related to the recovery of fugitives or other bail bonding activities, individuals must obtain a bail bonding license, issued by the North Carolina Department of Insurance. Once licensed, duties can vary for licensed bail bondsmen. Some licensed agents preform only duties related to the apprehension of fugitives while others also authorize and sign bail bonds. The term bounty hunting is actually not used in North Carolina. Bail bondsmen and their companies complete all aspects of pretrial services from the signing of bonds to the recovery of defendants.
