Humberside Police, South Bank Custody Suite

Back to projects

The new £14million Humberside Police South Bank Custody Suite replaces the old custody facilities at Grimsby Police Station and Scunthorpe Police Station, it is a 36-cell suite featuring a large charge desk with five booking-in points, 12 interview and consultation rooms, external exercise yards, large property store, offices, break out area and will house specialist teams including the Major Crime Team, Property Store and Prisoner Processing Team.

The custody suite has state-of-the-art equipment including finger print and "Tread Finder" technology which enables officers to link a defendant to a crime or rule them out of an investigation.  There are also facilities for checking DNA and biometric details of detainees as well as gathering photographic evidence.  Video suites are included in the new facility linking directly to courts, avoiding the need for prisoners to be transported to and from cells to court.

Each of the 36-cells has a bench-style bed with mattress, a toilet, hand washing and drying facilities and a mixture of natural and artificial light. There is a designated wing marked in orange for more vulnerable prisoners and a total of 170 police officers work at the facility.
