Appointments to the Independent Advisory Panel on Non Compliance Management
24 January 2013
Detention and medical experts have been appointed to a new Independent Advisory Panel to provide independent advice to the UK Border Agency.
The 6 member panel will look at the quality and safety of the training package for officers dealing with detainees who are non-compliant or violent while under escort, and in particular at the proposed use of force techniques. This is to ensure we use the safest and most appropriate methods for returning individuals to their country of origin.
