Your voice Your police: Independent Custody Visitors

Police and Crime Commissioners have a statutory duty to make arrangements for detainees to be visited by Independent Custody Visitors (ICVs) from local communities. ICVs are members of the public who give up their own time to make unannounced visits to police custody suites. They independently deliver checks on detainees to see if they have been treated fairly, with dignity and are held in conditions that are safe.
