PCC Wants Young People to Make Prison Visits in Dorset

Jail

8:58am 4th March 2014

Dorset's Police and Crime Commissioner wants to get young adults involved in checking on the welfare of detainees held in Police cells.

Martyn Underhill is holding a recruitment drive for Independent Custody Visitors at Weymouth College next week.

Volunteers can make announced visits to Police stations across the county.

Those interested in finding out more can go along to Weymouth College, Cranford Avenue, Weymouth on Wednesday 12th March at 1pm.

Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner Martyn Underhill said: "A large proportion of those detained are under the age of 30. I would like to welcome all members of the public who are keen to help the Force deliver on this aspect of the Police and Crime Plan, particularly young adults and minority ethnic groups. This will enable ICVs to be representative of the detainees they are visiting."

The closing date for applications is Friday 21 March 2014.
