APCC response to consultation on pre-charge bail
APCC Criminal Justice Lead, David Lloyd PCC said:
“Police and Crime Commissioners are committed to ensuring that the needs of victims are put at the heart of policing and of the criminal justice system. We, therefore, welcome the consultation on pre-charge bail and the emphasis on the need to protect victims.
“I have personally raised concerns about the impact of the changes to pre-charge bail at the National Criminal Justice Board and we will now engage with this consultation, with Government and our policing partners to help take this forward.”
