Don’t meet all parts of the job description?

We are dedicated to building a diverse and inclusive workplace which reflects the communities of Warwickshire. Studies show that women and people of colour are less likely to apply for roles if they believe they do not meet each item of the criteria. So, if you are passionate about a role, we encourage you to still apply – you may be exactly who we are looking for.

Could you be an Appropriate Adult or Independent Custody visitor?

We’re looking to recruit more new volunteers for our Independent Custody Visiting and Appropriate Adults schemes in Warwickshire.

Independent Custody Visitors (ICVs) are a well-established system of volunteers who attend police stations unannounced to check on the treatment of people detained in custody. They talk to the detainees and observe the conditions in which they are held and ensure that their rights and entitlements are being observed.

Appropriate Adults, meanwhile, support vulnerable adults in police custody. The detained person may be vulnerable because of neurodiversity, trauma, mental ill health, drugs/alcohol, or other reasons. An Appropriate Adult helps to make sure they understand what is happening and the process is fair, for example by sitting in the police interview with the detainee and asking the police to repeat questions or speak more plainly. The scheme ensures that vulnerable people can understand the criminal justice process, reducing the risk of unjust convictions.
