custody suite
 n.— «The City of London is looking for a number of Independent Custody Visitors to keep an eye on the conditions at the City’s two “custody suites,” as they are euphemistically known, at the police stations at Bishopsgate and Snow Hill. Their job, as far as I can tell, is to visit every few weeks and ensure that inmates are not chained to radiators, Abu Ghraib-style, while being savaged by Rottweilers.» —“Broker laughs in the face of market turmoil” by Martin Waller Times (London, United Kingdom) Aug. 30, 2007.
