What states ban bounty hunting?

There are only four states that outright ban the bail bond industry; Oregon, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Kentucky. In these states, a bail bond agent must coordinate with local law enforcement to apprehend a bail jumper. They cannot make an arrest and, if they do, can face serious legal consequences.

This doesn’t mean that someone can hide from a bounty hunter in these states. Local law enforcement has to make the arrest and, after they do, can turn the person over to the bounty hunter.
