Bailiffs work throughout the country, but more bailiff positions are usually found in larger cities as compared to the smaller ones. Independent bailiffs also work all across the country, although they too usually find more work in larger cities. States with the best employment prospects include New York, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, and Texas.
