Power to arrest person released on bail

    (1)     An authorised officer may without warrant arrest a person who has been released on bail in respect of an offence under this Act

        (a)     if the officer suspects on reasonable grounds that the person is breaking, has broken, or is likely to break, any of his or her bail conditions; or

        (b)     if the officer is notified in writing by any surety for the person that the surety believes that the person is likely to break the condition for his or her appearance and for that reason the surety wishes to be relieved of his or her obligations as a surety; or

        (c)     if the officer has reasonable grounds for suspecting that any surety is dead, or that for any other reason the security is no longer sufficient.

    (2)     Sections 24(2) to 24(5) of the Bail Act 1977 apply to an arrest under this section as if a reference in section 24(2) to "subsection (1)" was a reference to subsection (1).
