It's something I've been interested in for awhile. Just trying to find some information on what I would have to do to get it obtained. Is there any schooling that you have to take or what do you have to do? I've searched all over the net and all I've been able to find is keep a good relationship with your court clerk/judges/sheriffs. Not the actual procedures you have to follow to get the license in the first place. I'm located near Kansas City Ks if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance for any information!

well, first you have to assemble a team of ex-cons. then, make sure they grow redneck looking facial hair, get stupid looking tattoos, and get a show on a&e. oh, but first, make sure you marry a bleach blonde red neck women with large... ahem... "lungs." ;)
i think the requirements will vary state to state. in california, you're licesnced through the bureau of security and investigative services via the department of consumer affairs. they handle security guards, locksmiths, security alarm operators, and so on. you usually have to take a class and get certified in what you can do/carry. security guards can carry firearms, batons, and tear gas agents, as long as they're trained, certified, pass a background check, and work for a legit employer with legit licenses. look in your local phone book, or better yet online, and look up local bailbonds agencies. tell them you're interested in the field and ask how you get trained. if they won't train you, ask them for a referral, or see if you have to be certified by the state.
Where I am now, it is very hard to be a bondsman. Basically, I think you have to stand very still, click your heels together three times, and say, "I wish I were a bondsman, I wish I were a bondsman, I wish I were a bondsman." :D
