Reporting to police
What does it mean that I have to report to the police?
If your bail undertaking says you have to report to the police, then you have to go to the police station and report to the police. If you don’t, your bail can be cancelled, and you could be arrested and then fined or sent to prison for breaking the conditions of your bail.
Your bail undertaking might say that you need to report to the Officer in Charge of Police at a certain police station on set days and times.
It’s really important that you report to that police station if your bail undertaking says you have to. Your undertaking will tell you which police station to report to. It doesn’t count if you go to a different police station. Your undertaking will also tell you what days and what times you need to go there.
For example, your bail undertaking might say you need to go to the police station in Toowoomba every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 8am and 4pm.
When you go to the police station, you can tell the person at the front desk that you are there to report to police, because your bail undertaking says you have to do this. You might need to sign a register or attendance record book or have your photo taken, but the person at the front desk will tell you exactly what you need to do.
