Statistics

Because of the lack of a standard international definition of "death in custody," the simple comparison of the published raw data from different countries is of no value. The number of deaths recorded in police custody in England and Wales from 1990 to 2002 (2) shows considerable variation year to year but with an encouraging decline from the peak in 1998 (Fig. 1). In contrast, the data from Australia for much of the same period show little change (3) (Fig. 2). These raw data must be treated with considerable care because any changes in the death rates may not be the result of changes in the policy and practice of care for prisoners but of other undetermined factors, such as a decline in arrest rates during the period.
