Abstract

This report covers the incidence of 1996 deaths in all custodial settings and then discusses deaths in police custody and custody-related police operations separately, followed by prison deaths. The report concludes with a discussion of trends in custodial deaths. The second part of the report provides excerpts from the most recently completed coroners' inquests into deaths in custody.
