Briefing on Independent Custody Visitors
The public entrusts police officers with powers to arrest and detain any member of the public suspected of committing a criminal offence.
The ability to deprive someone of their liberty before an offence has been proven as a necessary tool for keeping the public safe and ensuring that the criminal justice process can take its course, but these powers must be carefully balanced with appropriate assurance and oversight.
It is fundamental to our system of policing by consent that the public have confidence that people detained in police custody are treated in a transparent, lawful and ethical way.
