Police custody – context, issues and the future

Andrew Digby, Head of Safety, Security and Standards, Ministry of Justice

The Home Office and Ministry of Justice have started a review of the Police Custody Design Guide. It is the first full review since 2014. In this time custody operations, construction technique and thinking about custody best practice have all changed significantly. The presentation will aim to explain the purpose of the review, look at the emerging themes and issues and sketch out the emerging direction of travel for police custody.

Roland Karthaus

Wellbeing in prison design

Roland Karthaus, Director, Matter Architecture

A team led by Matter has developed guidance to improve the design of prisons, based on evidence from environmental psychology and tested through fieldwork.  Setting out a series of practical design principles, Wellbeing in Prison Design argues that the way in which prisons have been commissioned and designed in the past has proved to be a barrier to rehabilitation and the welfare of the workforce.  The research, funded by Innovate UK and the RIBA Research Trust was undertaken in conjunction with the Prison Estate Transformation Programme.  The work is part of a wider research into the future of justice design which was recently shortlisted for the RIBA President’s award for research.  

Andrew Cupples

A Culture of Care – Changing the Paradigm for Youth Corrections thru a Trauma Informed Approach to Care and Treatment in a Secure Environment

Andrew Cupple, Justice + Civic Design Leader, DLR Group 

Abundant research demonstrates a direct link between deeply rehabilitative juvenile justice interventions and improved public safety, providing the foundation for a shift in thinking about the operation of long term secure juvenile facilities. This presentation will focus on best practices for planning and designing facilities for trauma informed care with numerous case study examples. The facility examples chosen for presentation represent a shift from custody and control to care and custody with a focus on promoting improved outcomes to divert youthful offenders from future crime and entering the adult system.
