Volunteering Vacanies – Independent Custody Visitor

Independent custody visiting is the well established system whereby volunteers attend police stations to check on the treatment of detainees and the conditions in which they are held and that their rights and entitlements are being observed. It offers protections to both detainees and the police and reassurance to the community at large.

We currently have three vacancies within the Newcastle Independent Custody Visiting panel who have responsibility for undertaking visits to Forth Banks Police Custody Suite.
