Criminal Justice - Bail Information
The Court has the option of placing someone on bail supervision rather than remanding them in custody whilst Court proceedings are ongoing.
The person has to agree to certain conditions such as not causing distress to witnesses, not committing any further crimes or residing in a particular place.
When on bail supervision the person will be expected to meet with a member of the Criminal Justice Social Work team for a period of time determined by the Court. The purpose of this contact is to enable people to remain in the community, continue with their employment, where relevant, and reduce the risk of further offending.
Criminal Justice Social Work staff will assist the person to address any life issues which may contribute to the risk of further offending. Individuals on bail supervision will also be assisted in developing skills and techniques to assist them in complying with their bail conditions and avoiding further offending.
