Lancashire's police and crime commissioner spends morning in cells

Blackburn Citizen: Clive Grunshaw Clive Grunshaw

THE police and crime commissioner has spent a morning in the cells to see first-hand the work being done by the county's Independent Custody Visitors.

Dozens of volunteers across the county give up their time to be ICVs and report back to Clive Grunshaw on the health and welfare of the people there.

Mr Grunshaw said: “I am extremely appreciative of the vital role being played by ICVs in Lancashire.

“The work they do is not talked about enough, because they are extremely important when it comes to reassuring everyone those in custody in Lancashire are being treated fairly.”

ICVs pay unannounced visits to custody suites in pairs to check on the welfare of those being held there.

It would be best for all if they locked him in a cell and threw the keys away. That might stop him wasting council tax payers money.

Nice to see the headline writer has a sense of humour. Just for a moment I thought 'PCC in the cells' referred to earlier item about the IPCC re investigating Clives admission to double claiming expenses.
