Custody volunteers make a difference

A team of volunteers are helping to ensure the rights of those in police custody are respected and that they are being looked after properly.

The volunteers, known as Independent Custody Visitors (ICVs), make random, unannounced visits to check on the welfare and conditions of detainees, some of which may not have been charged with an offence.
