Custody Information

Important information regarding family/friends being detained in custody

The police are not allowed to inform anyone of the fact that a person has been detained without their express permission (unless the person in custody is a juvenile). 

It is very unlikely that the custody staff will give you information about any person detained in the cells.  The detained person does have the right to a phone call and the right to have someone told of his or her detention (except in specific circumstances).
