Provision of Research Services – Custody

Dyfed Powys Police Authority is commissioning research to improve the protection of vulnerable and intoxicated detainees in custody. The Home Office Scientific Development Branch completed a review of Life Signs Monitoring within custody cells. Their report outlined results from a technical and operational assessment of Cell Occupant / Occupancy Monitoring Systems. Several incidents resulted in the review which led onto recommendations for improved development. The aim is to further develop this by exploring new technology that will support and improve the protection of the most vulnerable in custody.

Deadline for proposals: 16 November
