Fugitive Recovery

The process of tracking down and retrieving suspects who have fled to avoid court appearances. Usually carried out by fugitive recovery agents or bounty hunters. Methods for capturing perpetrators can be wide-ranging and may include background checks, surveillance, criminal records checks, speaking with family members and acquaintances, and entering the subject’s place of residence without warning. The most successful recovery efforts employ skip tracing and private investigation techniques. Several states have enacted rules regarding fugitive recovery services.
