Bail Verification and Supervision Program

The program provides community supervision to eligible individuals who do not have the financial or social supports to meet bail requirements. Prospective clients are interviewed while in custody to determine eligibility. If release is approved by the court, clients report weekly, or more frequently, to have their conditions monitored.

The program also provides enhanced supervision to support clients with mental health and substance use issues. The program offers specialized bail services for Indigenous people using a culturally appropriate approach to supervision.

The Bail Program is currently offered in the following jurisdictions: London, Woodstock, St. Thomas, Stratford, Goderich and Walkerton. Supervision is also available at the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation.

This program is funded by the Ministry of the Attorney General.
