Once an individual is produced before a court it is only the court that has the power to amend the conditions of bail and court orders which are the subject of a GPS tag.

The police can impose (limited) bail conditions both pre-and post-charge prior to an individual being produced before a court, although this cannot extend to any form of electronic monitoring.
