Skip Tracers are basically bounty hunters. They are adults that go in search of kids with Psi abilities, capture them, and turn them in. When a skip tracer turns a kid in, they are rewarded bounty money. A lot of adults become Skip Tracers to earn money in the economic crisis. To become a licensed skip tracer, you must turn in at least one Psi child.

Most Skip Tracers carry an orange identifier, a Taser, and handcuffs.

Skip Tracers are one of the threats that Psi kids on the run face. Throughout the books, Ruby comes in contact with many of them, and in the time between The Darkest Minds and Never Fade, Chubs even becomes one to protect himself...
