In this paper we seek to review the rapid rise in remand in custody rates in Australia. In particular, and in response, we ask and discuss three specific questions:
1. To what extent do defendants applying for bail have vulnerabilities?
2. To what extent can risk analysis tools that seek to predict breach of bail terms be relied upon?
3. To what extent can the emerging pre-trial services programs in Australia reduce remand in custody populations?
