Leon Briggs, described by his family as a "kind, loyal, intelligent" father, died after being detained at Luton police station under the Mental Health Act on Monday.
Mr Briggs was arrested by officers from Bedfordshire Police when members of the public reported concerns about his behaviour. Upon falling ill, he was taken from the station to Luton and Dunstable Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
