Bob Burton, of the Santa Barbara-based U.S. Coalition of Bail Recovery Agents, estimates that, bounty hunters make upwards of 30,000 arrests a year nationwide.

Burton said bounty hunting is, by definition, a "maverick industry," made up of adrenaline junkies drawn to the thrill of the hunt.
Even so, Burton said, bounty hunters make few false arrests and studies have shown they are very effective - the vast majority of fugitives pursued by bounty hunters are recaptured.
"If we were really messing up," he said, "the bonding industry would have been bankrupt from lawsuits."

Not only did Bob Burton, veteran skip tracer, serve as a technical adviser on the 1988 Robert De Niro film Midnight Run, but he's the dean of bounty hunters - literally. He founded the Arizona-based National Institute of Bail Enforcement and has trained thousands of bounty-hunter hopefuls at classes and seminars offered through his website. Burton, who has authored a shelf full of how-to books, a memoir and novels about bounty hunters, also has frequently been featured in the media as an expert on best practices in his profession. In 2004, he told a Detroit Free Press reporter that being a successful bounty hunter requires plenty of patience and endurance. "You drive around bad neighborhoods, drinking cold coffee, talking to stupid people," he explained. "It's boring as hell."

"As bounty hunters, we're driving around bad neighborhoods, talking to stupid people, drinking cold coffee, and looking for bad guys -- and they talk about the glory of it all," says Bob Burton, director of The National Enforcement Agency. The real reward, he says, is the adrenaline rush that comes from making an arrest. Burton refers to it as "adrenadollars" -- "For every buck we make arresting someone, we make $1,000 in adrenadollars."
