When someone is arrested they may be issued bail by the court. Meaning the court will allow the defendant to be released as long as they agree to appear in court as scheduled. However, the defendant must usually post a bail amount, which is collateral to help ensure they actually appear. In some cases, defendants either can't or don't want to post the entire bail amount themselves. They will then hire a bail bondsman who posts the bail on behalf of the defendant. However, bail bondsmen are not required to post the entire bail amount. They can in turn post a bail bond. Which is essentially an insurance policy, which commits the bail bondsmen to paying the full bail amount if the defendant doesn't appear as ordered by the court.
