Custody Demand Performance

cellThe Police & Crime Commissioner provides an Independent Custody Visiting Scheme. Independent Custody Visitors are members of the local community who visit police stations unannounced to check on the welfare of people in police custody. Visitors come from a variety of backgrounds and sections of the community. 

Her Majesty's Inspectors of Constabulary (HMIC) have recommended that that regular reports on custody including data are provided to Police & Crime Commissioners for consideration.

To demonstrate to the public that the police are delivering services to communities on a fair and transparent basis, the Police and Crime Commissioner will publish custody demand performance statistics on a regular basis.
