Police Bail Fiasco

In an article in the Sunday Times published 3 July 2011 by Katherine Eade, the article drew attention to the fact that domestic violence suspects might be freed in the recent bail chaos.

This followed a recent Court ruling that received much publicity recently, with the prospect of suspects being investigated by Police being freed and potentially going on to commit further offences.

The article went on to highlight concerns on the part of the association Chief Police Officers (ACPO) that chaos over Police bail could have an adverse impact upon victims of domestic abuse.

Following the well publicised public reaction, parliament acted quickly and passed Police (Detention and Bail) Act 2011 to remedy the situation.
