High Security Project one of four sites being refurbished under the MPS (Metropolitan Police Service) Custody Improvement Programme and is one of two projects we are provding access for, the second being Kingston Police Station.
The proposed works will include the refresh of all floors increasing the number of workstations by approximately 15% in addition to improving locker/changing ares. The The Directorate of Professional Standard’s teams currently located in the building will be relocated to the Hendon estate. The main aim of the custody works at Colindale are to improve the processing capabilities of the custody suite. Currently the 2 interview rooms and 2 consultation rooms are inadequate for detainee throughput. The extra space required on the ground floor for these improvements has resulted in the ability to provide for additional cells. Custody extension and refurbishment will increase the cell capacity to 25 with 4 charge stations and 5 interview rooms and 3 consultation rooms.
