UK National Preventive Mechanism publishes Annual Report


1 April 2016 - 31 March 2017

The UK National Preventive Mechanism was established in 2009 to strengthen the protection of people in detention through independent monitoring.

In coordination across the four nations of the UK, the NPM focuses attention on practices in detention that could amount to ill-treatment, and works to ensure its own approaches are consistent with international standards for independent detention monitoring.

The SPA Independent Custody Visiting Scheme is a member of the UK NPM.

UK NMP have published their eighth Annual Report (1 April 2016-31 March 2017).
