How Bail Works

Bail is a civil contract that obtains the release of a person arrested or charged with a crime. Licensed bondsmen are issued identification from the state. Make sure that you get copies of contracts you sign.

License Lookup

To check the status of a bondsman’s license in Oklahoma, select ‘OKLAHOMA – INDIVIDUAL’ and then enter a name. Look at the ‘License Type – Status’ row. The Oklahoma Insurance Department is available for questions or complaints.

Bail Laws

Bondsmen and who they can employ are highly regulated in Oklahoma. If you need to know if something is legal or not, you can find answers in the current statutes and rules for the bail industry.

Bail Enforcement

Licensed bondsmen may apprehend or surrender their own clients. If you are not a licensed bondsman, you will need a BE License to arrest bail clients. Education is provided by CLEET approved schools and the license is issued by the State.
