IAP Meeting 23 June 2009

The second meeting of the Independent Advisory Panel (IAP) on Deaths in Custody took place on the 23rd June 2009. At this meeting, the IAP discussed and agreed their code of practice and Panel members provided an overview of how they planned to take forward their particular working groups in 2009/10. Other issues covered included how the Panel would engage with stakeholders including bereaved families; the importance of IAP members considering the needs of BME groups as part of their workstreams and ensuring there is sufficient BME representation on the Practitioner and Stakeholder Group and policing issues arising from the G20 protests. The IAP welcomed Stephen Shaw, the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman who provided an overview of areas of the PPO’s work, which were relevant for the work of the Panel.
