The Independent Advisory Panel on Deaths in Custody (IAPDC) helps to shape government policy on custody and detention by collecting, analysing and disseminating information on deaths in prisons, in or following police custody, immigration detention, or detention in hospital under the Mental Health Act.

IAPDC is an advisory non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Ministry of Justice.
