G4S in Lincolnshire

  • G4S in Lincolnshire

    The Financial Times Weekend Magazine recently invited me to photograph at the Lincolnshire headquarters of G4S amidst damaging scandals which continue to raise questions on how the third-largest listed private sector employer runs its empire.

    This is the frontline of part-privatised policing, where police officers still make the arrests but G4S staff go to the scene, drive offenders away, and later process them for fingerprints and other paperwork in the company’s own 'custody suites'.

    Sergeant James "Jim" Morrison checks out a suspected drink driving arrest at Boston Police Station, Boston, Lincolnshire UK. The welsh HGV driver claimed he had only consumed 3/4 of a can of lager post being spotted. This "excuse" is fairly common when the arrest takes place away from the vehicle. In this situation his breathaliser recorded between a 52-55 mark which was over his claim. However he was bailed pending blood tests.For the Financial Times Weekend Magazine 01/11/2012 - James Dodd, Statement Images

    G4S Police Support Services ensures Kenneth Gould is safely in a custody suite in the streets to suite van. Kenneth had been drinking alcohol gel before being arrested for a public intoxication offence. He was transferred to the Pilgrum Hospital in Boston, Lincolnshire after it was found he suffered from a severe case of body lice. Before the G4S Street to Suite van was in action, transferring a "client" such as Kenneth from hospital to his home would have taken 2 police officers off of the road and in this scenario could have decomissioned their vehicle whilst it was fumigated for infection. The Street to Suite van helped keep those officers in action and due to the van's design, without any fabric for it's "client" seats, means it's easier to sanitise.
