New Bounty Hunter Laws

Bounty hunters would have to take at least 32 hours of training and receive a state license under a bill that has passed the Legislature.

The state Bail Bond Association supported the bill that now goes to the governor.

Unlike police, bounty hunters may force their way into a house without a warrant to find bail jumpers.

The Department of Licensing proposed the law after the Tacoma News Tribune reported bounty hunters were entering the wrong homes and arresting wrong people.
