Title

Bail Supervision and Arrest Referral Service

2.2

Description of the goods or services required

For the previous few years, the Scottish Government has funded the three local authorities within Ayrshire (East, North and South Ayrshire Councils) to deliver a Bail Supervision Service and Dumfries and Galloway to deliver an Arrest Referral Service.

The Criminal Justice Managers now wish both of these services to be extended across these four local authority areas which makeup South West Scotland Community Justice Authority area. Therefore, one Provider is being sought to deliver the Supervised Bail and Arrest Referral Service.

Bail Supervision has been delivered in Sheriff/District Courts which serve the three Ayrshire authorities for a number of years but will require to be developed in the Courts in Dumfries and Stranraer. This will result in a totally new service being developed and delivered across South West Scotland area.

Arrest Referral has been operational across Dumfries and Galloway for a number of years but there is no service presently operating in Ayrshire. Therefore it is anticipated that a totally new service will be developed and delivered across South West Scotland area.

Further information is contained within the Invitation to Tender document.
