How Important is
Arrest and Control Training in Bounty Hunting?Please See the Below Video Wherein Rex Venator, a Former Police Academy
Tactical Officer, Applied PC 832 P.O.S.T. Academy Approved “Compliance” Techniques
to Subdue the Profiled Bail Jumper Before Help Could Arrive to Assist in the
PC 832 40 HOUR Powers or Laws of Arrest Course is 50% of the legally required certifications
for the vast majority of persons wishing to legally bounty hunt in California,
and, very bluntly stated, I am growing increasingly fatigued by the ongoing
reports from Bailspeak Alumni indicating that certain key personnel at various
organizations offering the course are presenting as insensitive, “holier than
thou,” bothered, and, as this state of intolerable affairs continues, allow me
these very small concessions for Bailspeak Alumni only: California Powers of
Arrest P.O.S.T. Approved College PC 832 40 Hour Powers of Arrest Monday through
Friday Certification classes specially set aside for Bailspeak Alumni rosters
of 15 to 25 Attendees for both aspiring bounty hunters ANDbail agents licensed after January 1, 2000
who are not licensed private investigators.
Unlike other organizations, Bailspeak
Alumni will not be required to take the PC 832 Firearms portion, but I strongly
suggest doing so if one has little to no firearms training or experience with
Unlike other organizations, Bailspeak
Alumni will not have to worry about classes maxing out or classes getting
cancelled; indeed, by and through special arrangements by Bailspeak, additional
defensive tactics instructors will be brought in to accommodate Bailspeak
Alumni overflow with classes kept small.
Interested?Here is how to get on “The List.”
Bailspeak Alumni who have spent 22 hours
in class with me as the bail agent pre-licensing instructor may private message
me or Bailspeak on Facebook or by my direct email (Bailspeak Alumni have my
personal business card) and provide the following: Your Name, Date and City of
Your Bailspeak Class, Contact Phone or Cell Number, and Your Email Address.From there you will be contacted on how to
proceed to sign up for the class.
Be mindful that there will most likely
be travel and lodging expenses to consider, so don’t sign up if you can’t
commit to a Monday through Friday academic and very physical class.
This offer is ONLY for Bailspeak Alumni, and please do not call the Bailspeak
Registrar to sign up because this is a “Mothersuaresrex” special, solo project
to respond to too many reports of “my people” not being treated with the
respect they deserve—too many credible reports have prompted this action.
Thank you and I hope this works because
the “holier than thou” crowd, in my personal opinion, should have treated “my
people” with the good manners and the respect they deserve.
This is a pilot program in service of
Bailspeak Alumni; let’s make it work.
Facebook is not connected to my cell,
and I am always working.I will check in
and get back to interested persons accordingly.
Rocking the status quo establishment is
a hallmark of how I operate.
Thank you for your time on this Facebook

PC 832 COURSES FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION & ANSWERS
much does the course cost?
A: The 5-Day Monday through Friday Powers
of Arrest course is $115.00 collected at-the-door, and students will have to secure their course
materials in advance at a cost of approximately $46.00.Bailspeak Alumni will be contacted by email
with further information on how to secure their seats with deposits or
pay-at-the-door, though admittance isn’t guaranteed absent the seat security
Q: Where is the
A: Attendees will
be advised of where the class is in advance so that lodging arrangements can be
made well in advance.The cryptic nature
of this answer is due to the fact that bounty hunters and bail bondsmen are
generally very concerned about personal security and Bailspeak understands and
respects these valid concerns.
Q: Is the firearms
portion of the 832 required to be a bounty hunter?
A:No; however, if one has never handled
a firearm or if one is purely military trained and experienced then it is
suggested that students consider taking the firearms portion of the PC 832
Course; nevertheless, the firearms portion is NOT required to become a bounty
Q: How much is
lodging in the area where the class will be?
A: Bailspeak is
currently working on a Special Bailspeak Student Rate at a Hilton rated hotel.
Q: I am not a
Bailspeak Alumni, and other PC 832 Courses are full well into the middle of the
following year.May I sign up and get
into the 40 Hour Laws of Arrest Courses?
A: No.This PC 832 Class offering is only for Bailspeak
Alumni, and it is important to keep the seats open for Bailspeak Alumni only so
that they don’t find themselves put off by other PC 832 class offerings into
the next calendar year.
Q: I am a
Bailspeak Alumni.How do I get on “The
List” for this PC 832 40 Hour Powers of Arrest Course?
A: Send Rex a
private message on the Bailspeak Bail Agent Pre-Licensing Facebook page with
your Name, Date of Bailspeak Class, Location of Bailspeak Class, Email Address,
and Telephone Number.This information
is already in the Bailspeak hardcopy files of Bailspeak Alumni, so any person
who does not submit this information will not be added to “The List.”
Q:I am a bail agent.Why do I have to take this course?
A: Any person who
is not a licensed private investigator, was licensed after January 1, 2000,
does his or her own bounty hunting, and who has never taken the PC 832 Powers
of Arrest Course is required by California Law to secure and carry this legally
required certification on them while bounty hunting.

HUNTING is unlike any other trade that I can think of, but is also an amazingly
difficult way to get started and turn the red ledgers into black ledgers.
In all fairness, I did do about a week
of surgery (my personal term for pre-investigation) to isolate which of three
(3) counties and a dozen or so addresses that the bail fugitive, who scared
away an in-house team of investigators with a gun who then all took to fishing
for a week on the company’s dime, was believed to be frequenting.We got lucky and made contact on the first
Conversely, I’ve spent months traveling
vast distances, knocking on dozens and dozens of doors in search of just one

the amazing job.
Today, I will routinely return telephone
calls and hear people declare with the utmost conviction that they want to be
bounty hunters, but when they learn that the California Department of Insurance
20 Hour Bail Agent mandatory training certificate classes are an hour or two
away the aforementioned tones of conviction sometimes fade and with a very
common reply: “Oh.That’s too far.Isn’t there anything closer?”
Here I’d like to bring the reader’s
attention to some SERIOUS DUDES.Pictured are Bailspeak Alumni, ranging from all over California, who did
what it took to travel and get their mandatory 20 Hour Bailspeak Certificates
and then did it again to take the mandatory five (5) day California Penal Code
832 40 Hour Powers of Arrest course in the first steps to become bounty
The operative term I’d like the reader
to consider in the above paragraph is “...who did what it took...” in terms of
time, travel, expense, and personal sacrifice, because THAT is What it Takes to
even think of Becoming a Bounty Hunter.
Each PC 1299 Compliant Bailspeak Alumni
pictured did not TELL how serious they were; they SHOWED it without speaking a
word; THAT is what it Takes to be a Bounty Hunter.
I’d like to wrap here by extending my
congratulations to California’s Newest Bounty Hunters who “did what it took,”
and the unaffiliated independents should consider firing me off their resumes
because I’ve some killer leads on some killer full-time jobs and with all the
perks that go with such bounty hunting positions.
