I know i have already post a topic about this before, but i am still not fully understanding the actual authority of bail recovery agents in CO. Common law does not survive in Colorado and the only actual authority in legislation states " a surety may seize and surrender" I know there are alot of very knowledgable veterans on here. Can someone please comment on this topic. As far as im concerned TvsT authority being only dicta does not supercede state legislation. Which to me means all that can be done is recovering a fugitive but not able to enter any dwelling. Thanks guys i do appreciate it.

My public response is that their information is vague on purpose. I am aware that there are different acceptable practices depending on where you operate. I will reach out to a trusted pro in Aurora and get back to you. I have never been a fan of kicking doors and entering residences anyway. Patience equals profit and that involves observation first.

Apparently the laws in Colorado changed on 07/2012 when the Department of Insurance (DOI) stopped all oversight of the bail industry. There remains a requirement for 16 hours of training one time for a bail bondsman and bail enforcement license. While this appears to be contradictory, because it is, there is no requirement or restriction to be just a bounty hunter. There used to be a restriction that hindered anyone with a felony less than 10 years old, but that no longer exists. Colorado is an open carry state, but that is restricted in Jefferson County and the City of Denver, however, if you possess a concealed carry permit, you are okay statewide. Apparently, Colorado is still the wild, wild west!

Hello Scott!
Just a clarification...
You are right about city and county of Denver denying the right to keep and bear arms in their jurisdiction unless you've paid for the privilege by obtaining a conceal handgun permit. They do deny open carry to those who assume the right if they have no permit.

Jeffco, however, and everywhere else in Colorado is Open Carry. No other jurisdiction is exempt from Colorado's statewide preemption law. Legislation signed by Governor Bill Owens in 2003 stated regulation if firearms was a matter of statewide concern with extraterritorial impact. Denver claimed exemption on the basis of "home rule" jurisdiction.

The matter has been fought over since Denver took that stance, and holds to it to this very day. The Meier's Decision affirmed Denver's infringement of the 2nd Amendment rights if citizens and continues to be litigated to this day.

Point being, Jefferson County is an open carry jurisdiction too, and I personally O.C. there all the time. I had an officer in Golden try to tell me I couldn't in their jurisdiction, but after providing a detailed analysis of Colorado preemption law through the police department, got myself a nice apology letter from them.

O.C. anywhere in Colorado.... Except City and County if Denver! Everywhere else, you're Golden! (sic)

Thanks for the local knowledge and the correction!
