Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) has today published a post inspection review on child protection work carried out by West Yorkshire Police.   HMIC were keen to point out that although West Yorkshire police had made improvements, there were still many areas for concern. One of the main issues raised was that children continued to be delayed unnecessarily in police custody. HM Inspector of Constabulary Mike Cunningham said: “the force needs to improve its understanding of why it detains children in custody. Although there were some good practice in this area, five of the seven cases inspectors looked at, where a child was detained in custody, were judged to require improvement.” Stricter regulations concerning child protection and welfare came about af
