The 3 Types of Bail
Police Bail Police bail can be granted to a person who has been arrested, this is so the police can make further enquiries into the case before making a final decision. Police bail is also given when the suspect has been detained for a 36 hour period (maximum amount of time to be detained without charge). The police will give the suspect a date and time to return to the station where they will either be charged or released.
Police to Court Bail Police to court bail means that someone has been charged by the police and released on bail (with or without conditions) and must appear at court on a specific date and time. Conditions may be given to the accused if the police believe they may offend again or interfere with witnesses. The court date cannot be changed.
Court Bail Court bail means that someone has appeared in court and has been bailed by the court to reappear at a later date. To vary any conditions given by the court, the accused must approach the court through their solicitor. The police cannot vary conditions set by a court.
