Become an Independent Custody Visitor Volunteer

Any person aged over 18 and living, working or studying within the South Wales Police area can apply to be an Independent Custody Visitor.

Custody Visitors must be independent of the police or criminal justice system and be able to make unbiased observations and informed judgements in which the community and police can have confidence. The Commissioner must seek to ensure that the panel of custody visitors is representative of the local community in terms of age, gender and ethnicity, and welcomes applications from all members of the community.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer with us you can download the application form and further details here:
