Consequently, most RoB-eligible cases were screened out before bail information officers interviewed defendants. However, nearly without exception, interviewees advocated that decision-makers should be able to impose RoB and bail support conditions together. The reasons given for this were that there was no accommodation provided by the Drug Interventions Programme (DIP) and that there was uncertainty about the level of support offered by DIP other than in relation to drug treatment. Interviewees also believed that imposing both conditions simultaneously would reduce custodial remands, and data support this view.

During the pilot, each area had its own accommodation which was largely managed locally. A more centralised system of accommodation provision is likely to enhance flexibility and may reduce resource use. The disadvantage of such an approach would be that defendants may have to be accommodated away from their ‘home’ area making continuity of service provision more challenging. 22 This was one of the advantages of a regional scheme and worked well in the small number of cases where it was required although logistical difficulties were reported including defendants arriving at accommodation out of normal working hours.

The quality of the data from all sources was patchy. Data were missing or misrecorded. For example, some areas kept previous conviction records for all defendants assessed by bail information staff while other areas destroyed these when defendants were not bailed to the scheme. Data were also recorded differently between and within areas leading to inconsistencies as well as gaps in available data. The research team were able to plug gaps in data through triangulation of data sources but some data remained missing.
