Bail support: A review of the literature


This report presents the results of a literature review on bail support programs and services commissioned by the ACT Justice and Community Safety Directorate as part of their Justice Reform Strategy. A wide range of resources in criminological and other social services databases, accessed through the AIC’s JV Barry Library, were reviewed, and a number of government agency websites and public internet resources were examined.
