Information for young people about what to expect when in custody.



Recognising that being in custody can be a frightening and disturbing experience for a young person, Thames Valley Police has worked with Youth Offending Teams to produce a child-friendly guide explaining what they can expect when detained. The guide is available for young people brought into custody suites and explains the process from arriving at the police station and being in the cell, to the interview process and what might happen next.
