He has been an Independent Custody Visitor for over 20 years and is recognised for his experience and knowledge. He has worked tirelessely in the role and, above his regular visits to custody, he is also the panel co-ordinator who is responsible for scheduling visits and addressing any other panel issues that need dealing with. He is the regional Independent Custody Visiting Association representative, which means he ensures that not only Staffordshire's voice, but that views of our regional colleagues are also heard and reflected on the national stage.

David sits on the national board of the Independent Custody Visiting Association (ICVA) which means he is pivotal in helping to set the direction of the work of custody visitors.

David has been a member of the Independent Advisory Group for a number of years and is called to advise on any potential community impact issues. David has carried out this role with enthusiasm and dedication and has also taken on responsibility as secretary of the group.

The Chief Constable is delighted to invite the Deputy PCC Sue Arnold to present the PCC Award for Volunteer of the Year to David Hudson.
