Washington Bail Bond Agent
As a note of clarification, AmeriPro Surety Bonds does not offer “bail bonds” for the public who are attempting to release someone from custody.
We are a surety-only agency which offers a surety bond for bail agent owners and license-holders in Washington State.
What are bail agents?
Bail bond agents are in the business of releasing persons, pre-trial and pre-conviction, from custody who have been arrested and/or formally charged with a crime.
By placing a bond with the court or jailhouse, they are personally guaranteeing that they will be responsible for the defendant making all court appearances.
Failing to do so, a bail agency/bail agent accepts full responsibility for the face value (dollar amount) of the surety bond should they be unsuccessful in their attempts to locate a defendant and return the same to custody within a specified period of time.
