Police have confirmed a man has today died in police custody following his arrest, Deputy Chief Constable Jon Boutcher confirmed the death in police custody.

Deputy Chief Constable Jon Boutcher said: “Bedfordshire Police has contacted the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) after the death of a 25-year-old Luton man after he was taken ill in police custody on Saturday (13 June). 

“Officers attended an address in Purley Centre, Luton, at around 8.45am to arrest the man for domestic violence. 

“The man was taken to custody at Luton Police Station and became ill in his cell, where he was subsequently pronounced dead. 

“The IPCC was informed of the incident, as is procedure when a person dies who has been in recent contact with the police. An independent investigation in to the circumstances surrounding this death has been launched. 

“No further details will be released in relation to the deceased until a formal inquest has been opened. 

“Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time and we will do all we can to co-operate with the investigation and help provide the family, the Coroner and the IPCC with accurate information about how and why he tragically died. Without prejudice to the on-going investigation, from what we know at this time there is nothing to suggest this tragic death was caused by any police action, but we are keeping an open mind and we are determined that a full and transparent investigation is conducted so that the causes of this sad loss can be established for the family. 

“As there will be an IPCC independent investigation in to the circumstances surrounding this death it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
