I am seeking information on how West Midlands Police monitors custody performance and what specifically is measured across the service, by custody suite and down to individual staff

Is information on custody performance sent out to staff on a daily / weekly / monthly basis?

What template is used to send this information out to staff?

Can you provide the monthly performance stats for the last 6 months for your larger 20+
Cell suites


This is monitored both monthly and weekly and is published for staff on our internal intranet.

The remaining information can be found attached.
