Rethinking Detention: The Argument for Modernizing Police Holding Facilities

The call for modernizing police holding facilities in Cyprus, spearheaded by Nikos Loizidis, aims to abolish overcrowded, outdated cells and establish new, humane detention centers compliant with European standards. The proposal also advocates for dedicated professionals, not police staff, to manage these facilities, highlighting the urgent need for these reforms based on reports of dire conditions in places like the Limassol holding center.
