If you are arrested and appear in court, the court can decide if you should be given
bail instead of being held in prison. Bail is the temporary release of a person
from police custody until they next appear at a police station or the court.
Our social work staff may be asked to give the court information about you. This
could include confirming your address or personal income.
If you are released on bail with supervision, you will have to keep in contact with
us while court proceedings are going on. We will look at any problems you may have that may be causing you to offend (such as alcohol or drugs) and can offer you advice and support to stop you reoffending.
