The Harris Review


Independent Review into Self-Inflicted Deaths in NOMS Custody of 18-24 year olds

This is the official webpage for the Harris Review. The purpose of the review is to make recommendations to reduce the risk of future self-inflicted deaths in custody. All self-inflicted deaths are a tragedy and we want to ensure those that occur whilst individuals are under the protection of the state are subject to the most thorough scrutiny. Lord Toby Harris, Chair of the Independent Advisory Panel on Deaths in Custody, will lead this review and will be supported by members of the Independent Advisory Panel. Your reflections on the review and on this most important topic are very welcome.
