Police seeking electronic bail cap

Related

Police are seeking to have the number of people granted electronic bail capped.

In a memo released to The New Zealand Herald, the force called for support to have the service limited to 250 people at any given time.

Assistant Commissioner of Operations Nick Perry wrote to the Chief District Court Judge Jan-Marie Doogue asking for her support.

Mr Perry also expressed concerns that over the festive season the force couldn't cope with the 280 people currently on e-bail.

He said he believed police would not be able to handle the workload if that number was to increase any higher.
