Independent Custody Visiting Scheme in Norfolk

Norfolk Police Authority is responsible for the recruitment, selection and management of a group of volunteers who attend unannounced and in pairs at the various police custody suites throughout the County to ensure that detainees have had their basic rights upheld, are being treated properly and fairly and that the conditions within which they are held are satisfactory.  This in turn is designed to secure a greater public understanding and confidence in the system.

To help promote greater awareness of the work of the Custody Visitor Volunteers we present a short article “A day in the life of a custody visitor” (PDF file opens in a new window).
