Equality and needs of detainees

Detainees are drawn from all areas of the community. Everyone has their own particular needs and vulnerabilities, some more obvious than others.

The police should take all reasonable steps to ensure that these needs and vulnerabilities are identified under the Equality Act 2010.

Custody sergeants receive specific training in relation to equality issues on their initial training and subsequent updates their skills through refresher training courses.
