IAP Meeting 3 March 2010

The fifth meeting of the Independent Advisory Panel (IAP) on Deaths in Custody took place on the 3rd March 2010. At this meeting, the IAP discussed the development of a Communications and Stakeholder Management Strategy, the agenda for the family listening event being held in March, the long term development of the IAP's website and concerns about the accountability of private security forms providing services in custodial environments. The IAP welcomed Professor Keith Hawton and Dr Seena Fazel from the Centre for Suicide Research at the University of Oxford, who presented the findings of two case studies, which investigated the prevalence of psychiatric disorders in male and female prisoners who had recently engaged in near-lethal self-harm.
