What is the Iowa bail enforcement agency bond?
Iowa Code Chapter 80A.10 requires individuals file a $5,000 surety bond before being licensed as a bail enforcement business, private security business, or private investigation business. State form PD6 is officially titled “License Surety Bond” and is used for all 3 licenses. This bond requires licensees operate their businesses according to applicable laws and ordinances. If a bonded bail enforcement agency fails to do so, their issuing surety company will pay valid claims up to the full $5,000 bond amount, they must then reimburse.
