The provision of safe and effective police custody arrangements is vital to the work of the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and to the public's trust and confidence in the Service. The Met takes this responsibility seriously and if there is a need for an appropriate adult and there is either no available service or there might be an inordinate delay, then the MPS may incur costs to ensure the justice process can proceed in a fair and timely manner.
The MPS, my Office for Policing and Crime and local authority partners have worked in partnership to develop a shared approach to the provision of Appropriate Adult (AA) services, which aims to deliver a more universal service across London.
The table below reflects appropriate adult costings for the MPS.
