Commissioner’s message

“I wish you a warm welcome to the Hampshire scheme page.  We have a wealth of knowledge and experience within our members so if you decide to join us, you will be in good hands.

“The work of independent custody visitors offers protections to detainees and transparency of detention processes.  Custody visitors are the eyes and ears of the public providing reassurance that all is as it should be.  The work of custody visitors contributes to my Police and Crime Plan by providing accessibility, visibility and accountability of Hampshire Constabulary.  Their contribution to the scheme helps me to fulfil my statutory duty to hold the Chief Constable to account.

“I value this important service and the contribution that custody visitors make in helping to keep the people in our community safer.”
