Chapter 6.4 – Granting and refusing bail
If no magistrate is available, you as a JP have the power to hear applications for bail, seek information, decide on bail conditions and listen to some types of applications. What to use these powers for, as well as why and how, is described in this chapter of the Duties of Justices of the Peace (Qualified) handbook.
