The Objectives of the Bail Program

  • to reduce the number of accused who are held in custody awaiting trial

  • to reduce the number of remand admissions and the days stayed in jails and detention centres by inmates on remand,

  • to provide verified information about an accused to the court at his/her first court appearance and/or bail hearing, regarding the suitability of the accused for the bail program,

  • to offer bail supervision to the court as an alternative to traditionally imposed monetary or surety bail conditions,

  • to interview accused in custody before bail hearings in an attempt to expedite their release b y mobilizing community resources on their behalf,

  • to facilitate appropriate referrals to and follow-up with community agencies,

  • to assit the accused to understand the pre-trial release process and to comply with the terms of his/her release,

  • to ensure that the accused is aware of the appeal process and to facilitate access to this process.
