Hi reader

From North Yorkshire Community Messaging

The Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire is looking to find willing volunteers to assist with the counties Independent Custody Visitor (ICV) Scheme.
ICVs report on what they observe when conducting unannounced visits to one of the three Custody Suites in North Yorkshire: Scarborough, York and Harrogate. They visit in pairs and interview out of the hearing of Custody Staff those detainees who wish to see them and also, again with the detainee's permission, inspect the Custody Record of the detainee to ensure that all rules and procedures laid down in PACE Code C are being carried out.

The ICV Scheme gives the Police, detainees and the public the confidence that the legal rights, welfare and conditions in custody is best practice for all involved. ICVs often raise questions with the Police Custody Staff after interviewing detainees and inspecting their Custody Records and invariably receive positive comments and actions from the Staff.

If you are interested in finding out more, please read the document linked below.
Thank you and kind regards
The ICV Team
