A major key to success can be found in the process of education and experience. It takes both components to be successful in life’s pursuits, and as a result we must continue to learn from one another in order to strengthen as a whole. I have grown up in the bail bond industry, and have been a practicing bail bondsman since 2011. Through my time as a bail bondsman I have also had the opportunity to graduate Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina Beaufort (B.A. Sociology) and graduate High Distinction from Liberty University (M.S. Criminal Justice/Public Administration). The education and experience I have gained led me in the pursuit of forming South Carolina Bail Agents Academy. This academy has been formed to provide the South Carolina required 30hr pre-licensing bail bond education. The goal of South Carolina Bail Agents Academy is to provide prospective bail bondsman in South Carolina the educational, and practical experience necessary to advance the bail bond industry for the future to come.
The bail bond industry has recently become a major topic of concern throughout the judicial community on a national scale. These concerns have had little impact on our industry in the state of South Carolina until recent when the MacArthur foundation awarded Charleston County significant funds for criminal justice reform. This criminal justice reform is significantly aimed at jail population by implementing government run pretrial release services. These changes are due to take place in early 2017. This is a program that will have a detrimental effect on the bail bond industry we all rely on to provide for our families. It is essential for all bondsman in the state of South Carolina to unite in the fight to maintain our industry for the future to come.
South Carolina Bail Agents Academy was formed to ensure a successful future for our industry! In response to the criminal justice trends in our industry it has never been more important for all South Carolina Bail Agents to stick together for the betterment and future success of our industry. South Carolina Bail Agents Academy looks to have a strong relationship with the South Carolina Bail Agents Association and all members. In working to promote the continued success of this association in the battle to maintain and progress the bail bond industry for our future; South Carolina Bail Agents Academy will donate 10% of each class registration fee to the South Carolina Bail Agents Association if mentioned at the time of registration. The unification and support of all bail agents will ensure that the South Carolina bail bond industry will be successful for generations to come!
