"If efforts to reduce the prison population are to succeed then anyone involved in developing new bail and remand policies, or their implementation, should read this report. It sets out, in a clear and expert way, the gains and pitfalls which occur when policy ideas come to be implemented in practice."
Mark Drakeford, Professor of Social Work and Applied Social Studies, Cardiff University
About This Book
Bail is a fundamental human right which measures society's democratic credentials. Taken alongside an increasing prison population, there is an urgent need to find alternatives to custodial remands which do not increase risks to the community. This important book evaluates a bail support scheme called the Effective Bail Scheme (EBS), which was the first such scheme directed at adults, and places its findings in the context of bail law and practice. Based on up-to-date research, this book will make a valuable contribution to an under-researched area and provide useful insights for policy makers and practitioners.
