For Bail Agents By Bail Agents — Advocates for Bail Legislation & Reform

The Golden State Bail Agents Association was founded in 2004 by a group of bail agents who felt that the interests of bail agents were not being represented in state and local government. While the founders were competitors, they discovered that they had a lot in common and formed GSBAA to pursue their common interest in promoting and propagating the California bail industry.

We maintain a robust membership and are currently excepting new applications.
