Review of Detention

Routine review of detention must be carried out for most persons in police custody of the children pending the investigation of offence. If you are charged the review is executed by the custody policeman. If you have not been charged it really is carried out by an officer of at the least the rank of inspector that has not at any stage been directly a part of the investigation. The general rule is the first review must always be not later than six hours following the review of detention was first official, and subsequent reviews must occur at intervals of only nine hours. An inspector may in certain circumstances, carry out these kind of reviews by telephone or using video-conferencing facilities. You or your representative will make representation, in the appropriate approach and records must be kept.
