A One Day National Conference

Wednesday 22nd October 2014 – Central London

Our national Police Custody Conference provides a crucial update on best practice in custody in the context of reduced budgets. With a keynote address from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Prisons (HMIP), this event offers a valuable insight into common findings in joint inspections of police custody to inform strategy and procedures in your force.

Key issues to be covered at this conference include:

  • Common findings in Police Custody: Hear directly from HMIP on common findings in police custody in order to prepare for your next inspection
  • Reducing injuries in custody: Learn how modernising facilities and building risk assessed sites can reduce injuries in custody
  • Street Triage Scheme: Understand how the Street Triage Scheme has successfully reduced the number of people with mental health issues being taking into custody
  • Meeting the requirements of the law: Gain expert advice on detainees’ rights and police powers in order to ensure best practice that meets the requirements of the law
  • Monitoring and measuring: Take away learning on ensuring adequate monitoring systems and quality measures to allow the ongoing review of provision

Attend to hear from police forces that are leading the way in ensuring efficient and sustainable care. Do not miss this opportunity to takeaway learning on making custody a strategic priority that is consistently implemented to a high standard, in order to drive forward custody in your force.
