Police custody in Nottinghamshire - well managed and better conditions in cells

Police custody provision in Nottinghamshire had significantly improved, said Nick Hardwick, Chief Inspector of Prisons, and Dru Sharpling, HM Inspector of Constabulary, publishing the report of an unannounced inspection.

The inspection was part of a national programme of joint inspections of police custody. It looked at three custody suites operating 24 hours a day: Nottingham Bridewell, Mansfield and Newark. This inspection is a follow-up of the one undertaken in September 2011. The police force had made significant progress, especially in the conditions of the cells.
