Bail ISSP Processes and Responsible Officer
The following guidance is applicable to Monday’s and Wednesdays Courts only. On
all other days Court Staff are responsible for Bail ISSP Assessments (however ISSP
staff, when available, will support Court Staff).
NB: Requests for Bail ISSP assessments from the Court on Mondays and
Wednesdays need to be relayed to ISSP during morning court (before 10am
preferably but at the latest 1pm should a young person be brought over to Court from
the Police Station during the morning Court session). Requests from court after this
time, then responsibility in the first instance falls to ISSP staff, however if ISSP are
unavailable, responsibility then falls to Court Staff.
