Improvements in police custody arrangements in NI over past four years, inspectors found

THERE have been improvements in police custody arrangements in Northern Ireland over the past four years, inspectors have found.

In a report published today, inspectors said they had seen “examples of custody staff who were skilled and experienced in dealing with distressed, intoxicated and challenging people and circumstances”.

The inspection by Criminal Justice Inspection Northern Ireland (CJI) and the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA) examined how detainees were treated while in police custody and the conditions in which they were held.

Jacqui Durkin, chief inspector of CJI, said: “This inspection found that progress had been made since our last inspection in 2016 to improve the governance arrangements and the strategic management of police custody”.

Inspectors also recommended a roll-out of nurse-led health care provision across the north, which focuses on the “health and wellbeing of the detained person”.

The service was piloted at Musgrave custody suite in Belfast in

Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni on the importance of keeping TE Mo Alie-Cox involved in the offense, third down improvements & more

» Even with Jack Doyle and, soon enough, Trey Burton returning at tight end, there will be an emphasis to ensure Mo Alie-Cox is getting the football: The Colts spent most of training camp with Doyle, Burton and Alie-Cox, in that order, as their top three tight ends — a formidable, all-around group of talented blockers and receivers, all of whom bring a little bit different flavor to the passing game.

But Burton would suffer a calf injury in the team’s second training camp scrimmage at Lucas Oil Stadium just before the start of the regular season, which would land him on injured reserve and force him to miss at least he first three games of the year.

Doyle, meanwhile, missed the Colts’ Week 2 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings with knee and ankle injuries.

That left Alie-Cox as the team’s primary tight end that day at Lucas Oil Stadium,

Apartments With Privacy, Home Offices And Outdoor Space Command Higher Prices In New York City

After largely spending the last several months at home, New Yorkers who are still in the real estate market have certainly had time to narrow down their priorities. And they are prioritizing privacy and home offices as much as outdoor space, a new report shows. 

The report from real estate market data firm UrbanDigs, commissioned by Forbes, shows that homes in New York that were described in listings using words and phrases such as “privacy,” or that had home office or outdoor space, saw much less price flexibility, and also saw much higher median sale prices.

For example, the median sale price of units with listings that include the word “privacy” nearly doubled, from $1.58 million in April 2019

Just Approved: Cheap money to access from home equity

Mortgage adviser: Liz Bayer, ProMortgage.

Property type: Single-family home in Berkeley.

Appraised value: $1.215 million.

Loan amount: $449,000.

Loan type: 30-year fixed.

Rate: 2.625%.

APR: 2.841%.

Backstory: I have a number of clients taking advantage of historically low rates and historically high home equity to get a cash out refinance. Past clients of mine had decided that they plan to live out their days in their home but wanted to tap into their equity to make home improvements to provide features that will benefit them as they age.

What was great is that even though they had a good rate from a previous transaction, it made all the sense in the world for them to refinance rather their mortgage taking out more than $100,000 with a new rate — which was lower than the one they had, even though this was a cashout refinance.
