What’s this about?
The review of the Bail Act 2013 will help determine whether the policy objectives of the Act remain valid and whether the terms of the Act remain appropriate for securing those objectives.
The Act establishes a framework on the decision if a person who is accused of an offence, or is required to appear before a court, should be detained or released with or without conditions.
The policy objective of the Act is a strong and clear regime for bail decision-makers. This needs to ensure consistency of decisions and community safety, and reflect the seriousness of the alleged offending.
