The Independent Advisory Panel (IAP) has today published their statistical analysis of all recorded deaths in state custody between Jan 2000 and 31 Dec 2010.
This represents an important piece of work for the Panel as this is the first time that all recorded deaths in state custody will be broken down by ethnicity, gender, age and cause of death, and presented together in a single format.
The statistical analysis covers deaths in:
- Young Offender Institutes (YOIs)
- Police custody
- Immigration Removal Centres
- Approved Premises
- Secure Children’s Homes
- Secure Training Centres
Whilst not specifically a custodial sector, the report also contains data on the deaths of patients who died in hospital whilst detained under the Mental Health Act.
