Summary

When inspecting police custody suites, inspectors from HMICFRS 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 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 May 2018.
