Expectations for police custody: Criteria for assessing the treatment of and conditions for detainees in police custody

Summary

When inspecting police custody suites, inspectors from HMIC and HM Inspectorate of Prisons use detailed criteria, or Expectations, to assess the treatment and conditions of those detained in police custody. These Expectations also offer a guide to senior police officers and police authorities as to the standards that the two Inspectorates expect to find in these settings and the sources of information and evidence on which they rely. The Expectations were last updated in April 2016.
