Pilot Bail Advocacy and Support Services Program Evaluation Report

The Pilot Bail Advocacy and Support Services Program was a diversionary program that aimed to reduce offending. The program was developed in response to the rapid growth in the prison population. The evaluation of the Pilot Program commenced in April 2002 with a draft report submitted in September 2002 and the revised final report in January 2003. 

Following the evaluation, the pilot was expanded and its management was transferred to the Magistrates' Court of Victoria. In December 2004, the program was combined with the Court Referral and Evaluation for Drug Intervention and Treatment (CREDIT) Program. A further evaluation of the Bail Support Program was conducted in 2007-08.
