The welfare of vulnerable people in police custody (5097)

Police forces should establish a race equality governance framework linked to the force’s risk register. This framework should include:

  • collection of core data sets by ethnicity;
  • development of a common understanding of the current situation through analysis of the data and engagement with Independent Advisory Groups and local communities;
  • plans to make improvements to practice where this is identified as being necessary; and
  • establishing appropriate leadership and governance structures to oversee and make sure the work is carried out
