What is the Bail Supervision Programme?

Sub heading

Youth Offending Service, purple wash

This programme is offered to young people whose offence(s) are so serious/frequent that they would otherwise be remanded into local authority accommodation or into custody.

What does Bail Supervision involve?
An individual programme will be produced outlining what will be required of the young person and a copy will be given to them and their parents.

The young offender will be allocated a Bail Supervision Officer who will give them appointments to attend at least three times a week; they will be required to sign the programme together with the standards of behaviour that will be expected of them whilst they are subject to the programme.

The officer may also require the offender to attend other appointments during this time.

These may provide help and advice with areas such as:

  • education and employment
  • drug and alcohol misuse
  • benefit entitlements
  • relationship difficulties.

What happens if an appointments are not kept ?
A record of attendance will be kept and the court will be informed if an offender is not keeping to their appointments without good reason.

Failing to keep to the requirements of the Bail Supervision Programme is a breach of bail. The local police may be informed and this may result in arrest.

Breaching any bail conditions, including failing to comply with the Bail Supervision Programme, can result in being remanded into local authority accommodation or remanded into custody until their trial and/or sentence day.

If at any time you wish to discuss any aspect of the Bail Supervision Programme, you can call the Luton Youth Offending Service on the number above.
