Crime—offences while on bail
Mr Gentleman (in reply to a question and a supplementary question by Mr Hanson and Mr Cain on Thursday, 30 June 2022):
1) During Operation OQUENDO II, 21 offenders were granted bail.
2) To date, five offenders arrested under Operation OQUENDO I Operation OQUENDO II have subsequently been rearrested under Operation TORIC.
3) ACT Policing Intelligence provide a list of offenders who are of interest and who have compliance conditions to patrol zones. Where possible, patrols actively conduct compliance checking.
Police balance the monitoring of offenders with response-based workloads and current intelligence to provide a risk based approach. Bail monitoring and management actions by police may depend on the conditions of bail.
