He covered most of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. Working closely with law enforcement, he earned undying respect and contacts that culminated arrests on a daily basis. With no technology and no communications, raw instinct was the only form of “getting the job done”. It was an art form. Street survival skills and working with Confidential Informants and criminal instincts working inside the box. Bernstein developed the first ever Fugitive Investigative Strike Team (FIST) which the Marshal Service had used the same moniker. His methodology was to move fast in the face of adversity and possess an innate ability to quickly disseminate information. Despite increased case loads, Bernstein keeps his eye on the ball and maintains his vision where his intelligence indicates the existence of a significant number of fugitives from justice most often using bait to set the trap. His objectives were exact and modified for each defendant he chased down apprehending as many fugitives as possible. He was relentless and he epitomized the phrase failure was not an option. It was also known to all law enforcement agencies that he had the unparalleled abilities to track down escaped federal prisoners, and parole/probation violators. Bernstein’s work as an undercover investigator proved an incredible asset as a Bounty Hunter infiltrating underground crime operations which resulted in numerous arrests and filtering critical intelligence which resulted in hundreds of arrest in bail jumpers. Most of them in narcotic trafficking and other offenses which included homicide, bank robbery, kidnapping, assault, armed robbery, alien smuggling and counterfeiting. Bernstein believed back then as he does now that a successful operation must demonstrate our unwillingness to allow fugitives from justice to remain outside the system where they may, and do, prey upon innocent Americans. Fugitives must be arrested and returned to the point in the system from which they fled. Then, and only then, can justice be done. In 1991, Bernstein went national, and joined associations like NABEA (National Association of Bail Enforcement Agents), NIBE and others. No longer was he a lone Hunter. He developed and pioneered many fugitive task forces which are staples you see today in both private and in more public sectors now. Here is an example of Bernstein’s accomplishments: • Coordinated/planned with military force protection on all high profile VIP visits and events • Conducted briefings and presentations on current tactical and strategic posture, on remote sites, to facilitate future operations throughout Afghanistan. • Responsible for over 6,200 fugitive apprehensions (misdemeanors and high risk felonies) • Worked with local, state and federal law enforcement • Worked with International law enforcement in 12 countries. • Apprehend war criminals, terrorists, drug cartel members, prison absconders, parole violators. • State representative for NABEA (national Assn of Bail Enforcement Agents) • National Rep. for NIBE (National Institute of Bail Enforcement • East Coast Rep. for NABEA • Chair Person for IABEA (International Assn of Bail Enforcement Agents • East Coast Chairperson for BEAA | PBUS – Bail Enforcement Alliance of America • EAST Coast Representative of PBUS | Professional Bondsmen of the United States • Agent of the year – NABEA for all Years consecutive • Agent of the Year for all years running • Award for Decade of Service by NABEA and IAEBEA • Street Survival Medal • Board of Advisors – NABEA • Analyst a, Profiler and criminal Science Behaviorist for all Network and Cable News • Criminal Profiler for Law Enforcement for law enforcement agencies on high profile cases. • Supported the planning, direction, execution, and management of Antiterrorism Vulnerability Assessments, Operational Readiness • Presenter | Speaker • Co-Authored the Police Science Institute – comprehensive training manual for law enforcement and the bail enforcement industry. • Selected and worked as the sole Bounty Hunter for America’s Most Wanted. • Provided diplomatic protection and security detail for ambassadors and Presidents.

Child Recovery International NY, NY CEO January 1989-present As the leading international authority in the investigation and recovery of at-risk children and adults, we have serviced clients in 45 states and 16 countries to date. We provide a gathering of minds, science, technology, experience from highly trained and seasoned military, law enforcement intelligence agencies with unparalleled skills to bring resolution | closure to both open and cold (missing persons) cases. CRI will actively and steadfastly pursue every missing person without prejudice or bias with the latest technology and investigative/intelligence capabilities available. CRI will interact and work hand-in-hand with law enforcement agencies whenever deemed prudent to bring each case to a successful conclusion. CRI's primary success is our innate ability to profile each case immediately and quite accurately. While others may deem your child is a runaway, there are many instances where they have been stalked by a predator and fallen prey to the human/sex trafficking industry. Once taken into human trafficking it is often difficult to track the movements of this underground criminal enterprise but at CRI we do possess the skills to do so. This needs special handling and expertise in this field. Often times, children are force onto labor camps and are migrated. Some are killed when their captors find them of no further use or problematic. There is no awareness in the world about private sector agencies so the public are blinded to rush to the police and to a government funded agency such NCMEC which only has a 18% success rate. Most of which contributes to the fact that the children returns home voluntarily. CRI has: • Recovered over 600 missing and endangered children • Over 1500 adult locates • Infiltrated 20+ human trafficking trades. • International Human Smuggling Detection • Organized Crime Expertise • Vulnerability Assessments • Undercover Operatives • Private Enterprise Abilities • Cross border Capabilities • Extractions via Land/Sea/Air • Predator Tracking • Predator Profiling • Evidence Procurement • DNA Identification • Tracking and Cadaver Dogs • Rapid Response • Age Profiling • Parental Abduction • Hague Convention • Demographic and Geographic Profiling • Global Reach CRI manages day to day operations and operational budget of both Static and Mobile risk management teams: • Receive, analyze and dissect vital information • Skip Trace and prep vital case intelligence and information • Proffer a profile of obtainable evidence • Designed, modified and implement Security/Force Protection Standards, Policies and Directives. • Interact with coalition forces and local, state and federal agencies. • Vetted all personnel for the Mobile and Static teams. • Interrogation and Interview • Management of POI’s • Procurement, evaluation and Evidentiary value of online resources • Crime Scene Analysis • Procurement of Evidence • Preservation of Evidence • Fingerprint Procurement • Forced Entry • Witness Locates – Interviews • Material Evidence • POI • Corroborate Verbal Witness Statements • Forensic Biology • Analyze Impressions • Trace Evidence • Social media Tracking • Violent Crime Discernment • Breaking and Entering • Processing the Crime Scene • Scene Recognition | Documentation • Motive Analyst • Body Removal • Evidence Classification • Kidnap & Ransom • Art of Negotiation • Assimilate the predator territory • Targeting the Predator • Interposal Modus Operandi • Telecommunications and assessments • Portability • Confidential Informants New York Department of Insurance Fraud NY, NY March 2012 – September 2012 (Contract ended) CEO/Senior Investigator/SIU NYDIF insurance companies such as Aetna, Allstate, State Farm, regarding suspicious insurance claims. There are many types of insurance investigations, including: • Health insurance fraud investigation. This investigation tries to determine whether someone is getting paid for health care that they are not receiving or is filing health care claims and requests that are not valid or needed. We search billing records and make sure that doctors and patients are not colluding to commit fraud. • Car insurance fraud investigation. Some criminals stage accidents, in which they purposely collide with another car and then try to accuse the other driver of an accident in order to file claims. Some criminals attempt vehicle theft fraud, trying to get money for a car which was not, in fact, stolen. We uncovered these schemes. • Home insurance fraud investigation. In this type of insurance investigation, investigators discover disaster fraud, which includes false claims of damage. Investigators will often try to find out if the claimant has upgraded their coverage before the claim was filed. We also investigated property fraud to find evidence against those who make false claims about property damage. • Life insurance fraud investigation. Our Investigators worked to uncover cases of people who claim life insurance while still alive or those who claim too much in life insurance. Our Investigators also verified the existence of an individual who has life insurance being collected on them. • Workers compensation fraud investigation. Insurance investigators work to find evidence of workers who claim compensation when not as injured as they claim. Investigators will verify the severity of the injury and whether the injury occurred while the person was working. • Insurance company investigation. Our Investigative Operatives also worked to uncover evidence of bad business practices at insurance companies. If an insurance company takes your money but does not compensate you as promised, a professional investigator can help you make your case in court. • Some of the primary investigative techniques that assist our fraud investigator develop include a deeper understanding of the claim and the situation surrounding the incident include: • Slip and Fall • Product Liability investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident of the product malfunction as well as the injuries claimed • Covert surveillance to collect visual evidence • Witness locates • Interviews/Interrogations/Statements • Background checks • Skip tracing • Accident re-construction • Video | Photo Analysis Media: • NBC Universal • ABC World Night Tonight • ABC News • MSNBC • CNBC • FOX News • UPN • CNN • HLN • CBS • FOX Files • Oprah – Bounty Hunter Cases “American Bounty Hunter” • Dr. Phil - ‘The Hatchet Man” – Homicide & Missing Persons Cases • Geraldo – Bounty Hunter, Missing Persons • Rolanda – regular – Private Investigator/International Apprehension Agent/Cold Case Detective/ Homicide/Child Recovery • Sally Jesse – regular - Expert.
