June 2019: London Protocol for the provision of local authority accommodation for children held in police custody
June 2019: London Protocol for the provision of local authority accommodation for children held in police custody:
This Protocol aims to facilitate an improvement in outcomes for children held in police custody – a group of children who often end up in custody because of their vulnerability and who, whilst in custody, will be at a point of crisis. It seeks to facilitate this by supporting professionals involved in the transfer of children in custody to local authority accommodation to understand both their own roles and responsibilities and those of their colleagues and thereby to facilitate joint working. It also sets out how local areas should monitor the implementation of this Protocol and ensure that feedback develops and enhances local practice. The purpose of this protocol is to supplement the Home Office Concordat on Children in Custody. The Concordat forms the basis for this document and the London specific sections are highlighted. Practitioners should be aware that this version of the Concordat doesn’t include the appendices with contact details for the custody suites and out of hours/emergency duty teams. These are updated regularly and circulated by email.
