We are currently promoting the need for more Custody Visitors and for people to apply as there will be a recruiting drive by the PCC in the Autumn.
In the meantime 4 arrests have been made in the Kingsley Burrell investigation by the IPCC, these are arrests at present for an interview process and the question of charges may not even occur at this stage. However, it is progres no matter how slight for Burrell family in their quest for Justice.
One must always remember that the final decision whether or not to prosecute is the sole decision of the Crown Prosecution Service.
Lets keep a close eye on this one. In the meantime we must engage the systems that are there for us to participate in. We must ensure that there is National awareness of these Civic Roles and start canvassing and lobbying for a review on the whole process of how Deaths in Custody are dealt with by all parties including the Coroner's Service.
