A Police Bond /bail is a promise in writing by an accused person or surety to pay an amount fixed by a court or Police officer should the accused named in the document fail to appear at court or scheduled date. Police Bond is usually given at the Police Station and is usually authorised by the Officer-in-Charge of the station. A Bail or Bond is one method used to obtain the lease of a defendant awaiting trial upon criminal charges from the custody of law enforcement officials. When any accused person is released on Police Bond/Bail, that person is not cleared of the crime committed and therefore, they will be required to appear before court on a date, time and place indicated on the police bond.
