MultiStream suspect interview recorders have been installed at the impressive new Humberside HQ at Clough Road in Hull. The recorders have been fully prepared for integration with the custody record management solution due to follow in Phase II of the project.
The new purpose-built facility at Clough Road occupies an 8 acre site (shown here courtesy of Humberside Police & BAM) and includes a new 40 cell custody suite meeting the latest Home Office guidelines. The suite is a replacement for the outdated facility at Queens Gardens and as well as increasing the number of cells, the new suite has been designed to improve the flow of detainees so as to reduce the time taken to process for both officers and those being detained.
Clough Road will shortly provide an operational base for 730 officers and staff and brings teams together from across Hull delivering operational efficiencies and savings. BAM, the company appointed as the main contractor, also worked closely with Construction Works over the 18 month building phase to engage local people seeking work experience and this has resulted in many work placements and apprenticeships.
