President's Message

Indiana Bail Agents and Recovery Agents,

Welcome to the new ISBAA website. We hope that you will visit the ISBAA website more often to keep up to date on the current events taking place in our profession. 

As President of the Indiana Surety Bail Agent’s Association it has always been a goal of mine that the association’s website would move into the 21st century. The association’s Treasurer, Tony Widgrey, and I teamed up with StarChapter, one of the country's premier association management software companies, to help us. With their help we are now better prepared to make our website more user friendly and secure. Everyone will now find it much easier to find us at

You have certainly heard a lot about the novel coronavirus, better known as (COVID-19). I felt it was important to communicate with all of you about future upcoming association meetings. Until we can get guidance from the Indiana State Dept of Health on how to safely hold meetings, they are postponed.

Bail agents continue normal services to clients and their families through this unprecedented situation. We would encourage agents who meet with their potential clients in person to practice social distancing and maintain 6 feet of separation as much as possible, as well as avoid handshakes. If possible, wear a face mask, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer as often as possible. Cash, door handles, and most surfaces could have the virus on them. The health and safety of clients, jail staff and agents along with the public is of the utmost importance.

Thank you

Lee C. Sexton
