RESIDENTS will be able to get a unique insight behind the bars of Staffordshire Police’s custody centre in a special live Twitter event today.
From around 7pm Staffordshire’s Independent Custody Visitors (ICVs) will be publishing live updates on their new Twitter account @CustodyVisitors and you can read it all here.
The aim is to show people what is happening from their perspective and photographs will also be uploaded to help explain what is going on.
The ICVs are appointed by the Police and Crime Commissioner to check on the wellbeing of people held in custody by Staffordshire Police.
The 45 volunteers make regular, unannounced visits to custody sites throughout the year.
