The state has a fugitive task force that hunts people running from the law. They are not the only ones who chase fugitives. For many inmates who want to get out of jail they have to post bond. If they can't come up with the money on their own, their only ticket out is through a bail bondsman.

"We keep very close track of all of our people. These are all open files. Every single file represents somebody that we've bonded. We might have 4 per person," said Tracy Willis.

Those who are out on bond are required to make their court dates, check in twice a week, and they agree to pay the Willis' ten percent to post their bail. According to Tracy, 3-5% of them do not.
