This could be done by meeting in person, by writing to one another, or by relaying messages through an impartial facilitator.

Independent Custody Visiting is a well-established system whereby trained volunteers attend police stations to check on the welfare and treatment of detainees and to ensure that their rights and entitlements are being correctly observed.

It offers protection to both detainees and the police, and reassurance to the community at large.
