Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill

Back to all Motions

Police Staff Service Group Conference 2005
24 February 2005
Carried as Amended

This Conference welcomes the provision of the Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill which allows for the further expansion of Police Staff into more front line roles within the Police Service. However Conference is concerned that the provision of Police Staff in the role of designated custody officer could lead to the privatisation of custody suites within Police Forces around the country.

With this in mind this Conference instructs the Service Group Executive to campaign at all levels within the Service to retain the management and operation of custody suites in the public sector.
