Message from the President
Scott G. Hall

Just approximately one month left before the 2014 Mid-Year meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, kicks-off! Don't miss this exciting meeting and all it has to offer!

Our Tuesday night event will be a honky-tonk salon party at the legendary Nashville Palace. The Nashville Palace was once the home of the stars of The Grand Ole Opry and television shows such as Hee Haw and Nashville Now near Opryland, and is now owned and operated by Jesse Lee Jones, the proprietor of Robert's Western World, the "Home of Traditional Country Music" in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.

In taking over the reins at the Nashville Palace, Jesse Lee's primary goal is to bring the Palace back to the "Golden Era" of country music, bearing in mind the stars that were born in that very place. It is also a priority to promote and perpetuate traditional country music and its history. It is Jesse Lee's belief that this is the music that made "Music City" and it is befitting to maintain and keep alive this art-form that was born in Bristol, Tennessee, the birth place of country music, but made popular worldwide right here in Nashville.

And don't miss our one-of-a-kind concert featuring Chris Janson! More on this exciting entertainer in the next edition of the PBUS News Update.

Remember: The early-bird registration ends June 30, 2014! Please make sure you sign-in as a member before registering for the conference to get the member conference rates! If you are not yet a PBUS member, I encourage you to join our national association and network with bail agents across the country.

Some call Oregon 'safe haven' for fugitives
Some groups are calling Oregon a safe haven for criminals because of the state's lack of a bail bond program. Oregon is one of four states in the U.S. that's considered a no bail state, which means bail bonds and bounty hunters are illegal, leaving all the work for law enforcement.

Can the Affordable Care Act reduce pretrial detention?
Pretrial Justice Institute
Seema Gajwani, program officer for the Criminal Justice Program at the Public Welfare Foundation, writes: "As a public defender in the District of Columbia I would spend a couple of days a month in the basement courtroom of DC Superior Court handling arraignments. There, newly arrested individuals would come before a judge who would make the critical decision about whether they would be detained in DC Jail pending trial or released under supervision to return for their next court date. Day in and day out, I would see people come through arraignment court in need of substance abuse or mental health treatment."
