The police released me on bail – what does this mean?

Police bail, sometimes called pre-charge bail, will be imposed when the police have arrested and detained a suspect but are not yet in a position to make a decision whether they are going to charge them.

The individual needs to be released on either police bail, released under investigation (‘RUI’) or no further action is taken, which means the investigation is concluded (‘NFA’).
