Visiting Statistics


Statistics, including the number of visits made, where to, how many detained persons were spoken to and what issues were raised are retained by the Scheme Manager and regularly reviewed by the Commissioner, Chief Inspector in charge of Custody Suites and, of course, the Independent Custody Visitors.

Reports are prepared and presented for scrutiny at the public meeting of the Strategic Priorities Assurance Board (SPA)  twice per year, normally in April and October. The reports can be found on the meetings section of the PCC Website.
