If the injury or illness would benefit from more advanced measures then these are detailed as well as any skills needed to carry them out. The British Medical association (BMA) have published guidance on the “Health care of detainees in Police stations”. A large proportion of detainees will be vulnerable for a number of reasons; this could be due to poverty, mental health issues or drug or alcohol dependence. These can lead to medical problem which can potentially affect them whilst detained. The Custody Officer is responsible for the care and treatment of detainees including the provision of food, drink, human contact, warmth, sleep, exercise, personal hygiene, clothing, protection from injury and medical treatment. Medical assessment and or treatment may need to be carried out on any detainees, those held due to immigration issues, those living on the streets, persons with mental health issues or those that are intoxicated through drink or drugs and that require a place of safety.


A custody officer may require additional support in the care of detainees from a Health Care Professional; this could be a Doctor, Nurse or Paramedic.
