How to Become a Bounty Hunter in New Hampshire

Becoming a Bounty Hunter in New Hampshire requires training, certification, and registration. Specifically, one must receive training that is approved by the Professional Bail Agents of the United States, a national organization of bail bond professionals. This usually includes training in law, safe fugitive recovery techniques, and ethics, among other things. Then, you must find employment with a recovery agent to gain experience before soliciting contracts from bond companies. The reason for this is that bond companies usually only want to hire Bounty Hunters with proven track records to ensure that their bonds are recovered in time. However with training, experience, and time, it is possible to learn how to skip trace effectively and become a Bounty Hunter in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire Bounty Hunter Licenses and Requirements

Beyond receiving training as noted above, Fugitive Recovery Agents must register with the New Hampshire Secretary of State. The bond company that you work for must also have liability insurance up to $300,000. If any of these requirements is not met, the Recovery Agent can be charged with a misdemeanor.
