After the accused has been arrested and taken to the police station, the police may ask that a bail hearing be held. Bail hearings are “Court Hearings” before a Judge or Justice of the Peace to see if the accused should be released from police custody after being arrested and while awaiting the trial date.
At the bail hearing the police may suggest that if the court decides to release the accused that the court bail conditions upon them, e.g. curfews, no alcohol etc. The judge reviews the case and then makes a decision to either release the accused with or without bail conditions.
