So who does provide custody facilities for Staffordshire Police?
Case study: Staffordshire Police
The Staffordshire Police northern custody facility became operational in 2005 providing centralisation of policing services across North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. G4S operates and maintains the facilities as well as providing a complete range of support services, which includes carrying detainees to and from the facilities and between police forces.
“The flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile is always there; our Custody Manager states that we get a better level of service from G4S CDO’s than we ever got in-house.”
Staffordshire Police spokesperson
