Policing Youth Curfews: The 'Wee Willie Winkie' Model of Enforcing Bail Conditions


Robinson, A and Bartkowiak-Theron, I, Policing Youth Curfews: The 'Wee Willie Winkie' Model of Enforcing Bail Conditions, Australasian Policing - A Journal of Professional Practice and Research, 6, (2) pp. 10-14. ISSN 1837-7009 (2014) [Refereed Article]


Curfew is perhaps one of the ‘easiest’ bail conditions to police in terms of process or resources in comparison with other conditions (for example: prohibiting defendants from associating with other people). Curfew monitoring usually involves officers attending an address between designated times, checking the person is at the residence and if they do not physically present themselves to police, prosecuting the person for breach of bail. It is possible due to this ‘ease of access’ that an inflation of numbers for those breaching curfew, rather than other conditions, has resulted.
