There are currently no vacancies for staff within the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner.
Independent Custody Visitors
Do you have what it takes to check prisoner welfare, custody conditions and police behaviour?
Barry Coppinger, Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland, has responsibility for a team of Independent Custody Visitors, a team of volunteers who make unannounced visits to police stations at Middlehaven and Hartlepool.
You will speak with people detained in custody, check their welfare and the conditions in which they are being held and submit reports on their visits. You will work in pairs and will carry out a minimum of six visits per year.
- must be over 18.
- must not be justices of the peace, serving police officers or civilian employees, appropriate adults; members or staff from police and crime commissioners or special constables.
- may have their applications appraised if there appears to be a conflict of interest for people working in other areas of the criminal justice system, such as solicitors and members of the probation service.
- always work as volunteers and only receive out of pocket expenses incurred while carrying out their roles.
- must have a good understanding of the English language - or Welsh, where appropriate - as all ICVA guidelines, reporting and recording procedures are available in either English or Welsh.
Having a criminal record or unspent convictions is not an automatic barrier to becoming a custody visitor. Individual circumstances will be assessed against the needs of the post and suitability of the applicant. All appropriate applications from members of the public are considered on their own merits.
Suitable applicants are invited to attend an interview based on the submission of an application form to the Police and Crime Commissioner.
