California Association of Licensed Repossessors

REPOSSESS In 1961 The California Association of Licensed Repossessors (CALR) was incorporated.  CALR is composed of men and women who are dedicated to improving the Collateral Recovery Industry. Our purpose is to strengthen understanding between licensees, law enforcement, financial institutions, regulatory agencies and the consumer. We provide our members continuing education in the fields of public relations, business principles and professionalism in the Collateral Recovery Industry.
CALR is pro-active in introducing and passing legislation in California.  We are the largest and oldest state repossession trade association in the US.  Many states look to California for guidance in enacting and passing legislation in their individual states including a leading platform for other states to enact recovery agency licensing.

Please visit the "NEWS" page for some of the more important laws passed in California that help the repossessor in the field effectively gain and retain possession of the collateral.  Our second generation lobbyist, Jerry Desmond, of Desmond and Desmond located in Sacramento and our CALR legislative liason Joe Collins, worked together successfully to get these laws passed.
