We also require the willingness to go above and beyond the state requirements from all our students.
Class size is limited and there is often a wait-list. Visit our Kitsap Bail Academy Facebook page to find out when the next class is, and take the first step on your way to becoming a Washington State Bail Enforcement Agent.
