Techie1 posted a topic in UK Police/Crime NewsThe number of ambulances called out to police custody suites in London more than doubled, from 2,374 to 5,018, in the past four years, a rise that critics say exposes the shortage of nurses to assess and treat detainees. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/apr/01/met-police-shortage-nurses-ambulance-call-outs
Can someone can assist with my questions about police detention limits in Scotland, I would like to know more about basic pre-charge detention in Scotland. I have read the relevant part of section 295 of the Criminal Procedure (Scotland) Act 1995. But is there more?, What happens if a prisoner is arrested in a different part of Scotland than the area where the offence was committed?, do police still have only 12 hours? What happens if the prisoner is arrested OUTSIDE Scotland for an offence committed in Scotland? What if the prisoner is arrested for 2 offences committed in two completely different areas of Scotland? Thanks in advance john
