National Custody Seminar
We are pleased to announce that the seventh National Custody Seminar and Exhibition will be held at the Hilton Hotel Warwick/Stratford-Upon-Avon from 11:00 on Tuesday 12 September until 13:00 on Wednesday 13 September.
This event will consider key issues affecting police custody both now and in the future as well as encourage and develop the sharing of best practice in this key area of police operations. Matters for discussion and debate this year are expected to include:
- PACE Changes arising from the Police & Crime Act
- The Home Secretary’s Independent Review of Deaths and Serious incidents in police custody
- The NPCC’s National Custody Strategy
- Improving safety in police custody environments
- Learning the lessons from serious incidents & investigations
- Safeguarding the rights of suspects and victims
The event aims to set the scene and direction that will ensure custody suites across the country are operated professionally, allowing those responsible for procuring, managing and delivering front-line custody services to fully understand and comply with legislation, guidance and protocols and provide lawful, safe and proportionate police custody.
Delegates will hear from keynote speakers drawn from a range of important police custody stakeholders and partner organisations as well as from the National Custody Forum and lead custody representatives who will reflect their current priorities, focus and strategy.
This annual event has developed an excellent reputation for consistently delivering quality content that is highly relevant to those working in and around police custody and the many challenges that they face going forward.
Who should attend: Police Federation Custody Representatives, Custody Officers and other officers and staff currently serving in custody, Custody Inspectors, Custody Managers, Police Estate Managers, Police Procurement representatives, Police Stakeholder groups and any organisations with a particular interest in police custody issues.
