PBAI is an association that stands behind it's members. Representing Idaho Bail Agents since 1989 .
PURPOSE OF PBAI:
The Professional Bail Agent is the main instrument though which the right to freedom before trial is practically applied. This function imposes obligations beyond ordinary private enterprise. It imposes grave social responsibility to which the Bail Agent should dedicate himself or herself, and for which the Bail Agent should prepare diligently. The Bail Agent, therefore, must be zealous to maintain and improve the standards of the bail profession and share with fellow Bail Agents common reponsibility for the integrity and honor of the Bail Profession.
Every Bail Agent pledges to conduct his or her business in accordance with the Code of Ethics adopted by this Association.
