New National Standards

ICVA has launched a consultation process on national standards to ensure that they reflect the experiences of all involved in the process and incorporate many good practices that have been developed locally as part of the national custody visiting process.

This will roll out during Summer 2013, when scheme administrators and independent custody visitors are invited to submit comments to following a series of focus groups.

  • Raise public awareness on the rights , entitlements, health and wellbeing of people held in police custody
  • Advise on best practice for independent custody visiting schemes nationally
  • Provide training, publicity and support to Police and Crime Commissioners and ICVs.
