Celebrate 'Bail Month' this September with the facts
Allegheny Casualty International Fidelity Associated Bond
If the pretrial community wants to declare September "Bail Month," then I think the bail community should fully embrace and endorse their call to action. I move that — during the month of September — the bail industry dispense and share "our" collective knowledge and research with those in the criminal justice system. We need to make sure that the real "statistics" are being shared so that local jurisdictions can make the best criminal justice decisions possible. It is time for the bail community to stand up and be heard and I can’t think of a better time to do so. After all, it is "Bail Month."

Best practices for skip-tracing
Alex Price
Alex Price says: "Since my retirement from active skip-tracing eight years ago, I now have the opportunity to sit back and observe the industry closely. Since I've taken on a teaching and training role — reaching a new generation of skip-tracers with MasterFiles — I see much talk and concern on the topic of best practices and compliance. To the latecomers I say, 'Welcome to the party!' To those of you who have spent an entire career making sure that your company and your team are well-trained and educated in the local, state and federal regulations, this subject is nothing new."

Things to know before cosigning bail bonds
The Bail Blog
When you cosign for bail bonds, you are essentially taking responsibility for two things. The first and most important is that the defendant will go to court. When a person is bonded out of jail, their case is not over. You are also agreeing to pay the bondsman's fee.

California governor's prison plan clears Assembly committee
Los Angeles Times
In California, Gov. Jerry Brown's plan for reducing the prison population cleared its first legislative hurdle when the Assembly Budget Committee approved his request for $315 million for alternative housing. Approval by the full Assembly would set the stage for a showdown in the Senate, where Democrats oppose the measure. They want more money spent on rehabilitation services and drug and mental health treatment so offenders do not end up back in prison after their release.

PoliceOne.com
Many police agencies, private businesses and the federal government have experienced some kind of hacker intrusion in the past few years. And thanks to Hollywood, there's widespread misunderstanding of what a computer hacker really is. In essence, hackers write lines of computer code — typically referred to as a "virus" — as a means of gaining entry to a network.
