Custody Centre

There are a number of custody centres across the force area dealing with offenders upon arrest. When a person is arrested they will usually be taken to a police station, held in custody in a cell and then questioned.

The custody officer at the police station must explain the person’s rights. These include:

  • get free legal advice

  • tell someone where they are

  • have medical help if they’re feeling ill

  • see the rules the police must follow

  • see a written notice telling their rights, eg regular breaks for food and toilet use

They will be searched and their possessions will be kept by the police custody officer while in the cell.

You can find more on the government website.
