Death in police custody - Inquests

When a death happens in police custody it can be very distressing for the family involved. It is often very difficult to find out what really happened and there are usually many questions about the time immediately before the death.

  • Was the deceased restrained?
  • Was medical attention sought immediately?
  • Was the deceased subjected to any violence?

Excited Delirium Syndrome

A controversial issue is sometimes referred to in these cases and that is known as ‘Excited Delirium Syndrome’. This is when someone shows symptoms of agitation, anxiety, disorientation, hallucinations and often violent, bizarre behaviour. This has often been linked to deaths in custody.
