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."

Bob Burton, head of the United States Coalition of Bail Recovery Agents, says this can create some tension between bounty hunters and police.
BURTON: The police have a fifty-fifty love hate relationship with us because we are doing what they do. In this week's podcast, hear Alex Tabarrok explain how bounty hunting works like a business and why Bob Burton thinks "Dog the Bounty Hunter" is "pure television nonsense."

In this article, we'll find out how bounty hunting works, learn the history of the profession and follow Bob Burton, one of the country's top bounty hunters, on the search for a fugitive.
"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."
