These systems are utilized by local law enforcement for keeping track of these offenders in the interest of public safety.

Some records in the database may only list last known addresses.
Bail and Bondsman
The court requires a pledge of money or property (called bail) before it will release a defendant awaiting trial from custody. This is to ensure that the defendant will come back when the trial begins. Bail is returned to the defendant after the trial minus some court fees. However, if he violates the conditions of his release, he forfeits the bail and is labeled a fugitive.
A bail bondsman can act as a surety for a fee. This is one way to post bail if you cannot afford it on your own. The fee is usually 10% of the bail amount but it is not refundable.
