Bail Supervision

As of April 2021, Fife Justice Social Work created a dedicated Enhanced Bail Supervision Team. The traditional bail service has been enhanced by offering every individual who appears in Court from custody the opportunity to be assessed for bail supervision.

Those who accept this service are assessed on their suitability, assessing social and physical welfare needs, risk of harm and any compliance issues.

If assessed as suitable, the individual agrees to comply with an intensive support regime to address the welfare issues, which may be linked to their offending behaviour whilst also agreeing to abide by any bail conditions imposed by the Court to ensure public safety.

If the Court agrees that bail should be granted the bail conditions are:

  • Attendance at two office appointments a week with your Supervising Officer
  • Engagement with a minimum contact agreement of 2 per week which will be a mixture of home visits, office appointments and telephone appointments - contact may be more than this depending on the nature of offences
  • The Court will receive detailed progress reports on all further appearances relating to Bail Supervision matter
  • Supervision consists of practical welfare-based support
