Independent Custody Visitors are members of our local community, selected to make visits to the Island's custody suites to ensure that detainees are treated properly.
Independent Custody Visitors are volunteers appointed by the Committee for Home Affairs to make unannounced visits to the Police and Guernsey Border Agency custody facilities.
Following these visits, they write a brief report about their visit, including the conditions of detention and operation of the custody suite. These reports provide an insight into the running of the custody area and provide a vital source of information on the environmental and welfare conditions in which detainees are held.
Independent Custody Visitors are selected from all walks of life so as to be representative of the community.
