Recent changes to PACE Code C have placed greater emphasis on identifying vulnerabilities, both in adult and child suspects. What will this look like in practice? How can practitioners from different disciplines work together to ensure suspects get the support they need? We’re putting together a practice-focused panel to stimulate discussions about effective practice.
Panel members include:
