Child Custody

Child custody issues are not always a police problem.  Still sometimes police can be helpful in resolving them.  Often parents have difficulty when it is time for estranged or divorced parents to swap a child that they share custody.

Some agencies allow people to use the lobby of the police station to exchange the child.  This has several advantages.  It reduces the likelihood of a parent creating a disturbance if they are in the police station. 

It can also be a good idea to have videotaping going on in the lobby area.  Video of the exchange can help to prove or dis-prove a problem when the exchange is made.  It also makes police response very fast if the exchange takes place in the police station, and lessens the chance of injury to the child; that's what the SGT Says.
