    Being a police officer does not preclude you from the same rights and privileges as any other citizen.

    With the exception of murder and gun related offences which require an accused to apply to a judge in the high court for bail, bail is granted at the lower courts by a magistrate for all other offences.

    All persons are considered innocent until proven guilty and therefore, bail is available, once the required criteria are met.
