In this week’s edition news includes a warning from senior leaders at Avon and Somerset Constabulary of “extremely serious consequences” from budget cuts, the Independent Police Complaints Commission has asked forces to address national inconsistencies in complaints-handling, and the latest on the investigation into the Parsons Green terror attack. There is lots more news and features including a look at the possible outcomes after a conviction for burglary, a visual analytics system set to revolutionise crime analysis is being trialled in the UK and Europe, and forensic scientists have developed a method of recreating arterial spray to improve blood pattern analysis techniques. Dr Ian Hesketh and Dr Noreen Tehrani explore trauma faced by specialists and discuss psychological risk management methods and our cover feature looks at developments in police custody as leaders aim to transform its image as a punishment posting to one of the most professionalised areas of activity.
The responsibilities of custody officers are often immense and hazardous, which is why a recent conference sought to make police cells a safer place for all.
Police Professional’s series explaining the world of sentencing continues as we explore the range of outcomes after conviction from differing scenarios.
In this, the second of a series of three articles, Dr Ian Hesketh and Dr Noreen Tehrani explore the current challenges faced by specialist roles within the UK police, specifically in relation to trauma exposure and psychological risk management.
