Voluntary Police Interview

Have you been invited to attend a voluntary police interview? You must know that anything you do or don’t say during the interview can be used against you in a Court of Law. As a result, it’s wise to have a Specialist Senior Criminal Defence Lawyer present to offer you representation at the police station

What is a voluntary police interview?

A voluntary police interview is the process of formal questioning by the police, often at a police station. It’s important to note that you are not under arrest and can leave at any given time. Since it’s a voluntary interview, you can refuse to attend, but this may prompt the police to arrest and charge you. 

A police interview is one of the most vital parts of a criminal case and is recorded for the police to use as evidence later to prosecute those accused of a crime. This means the legal consequences can be severe. It’s normal to feel anxious about saying the right thing or what you might be asked. The last thing you want is for your nerves to get in the way during questioning. 

Repute Law’s Specialist Senior Criminal Defence Lawyers will ensure you know your legal rights during this time and provide you with the best representation possible.

How we can help

Just because the word “voluntary” is used doesn’t mean it’s a relaxed chat that you should be unprepared for. Police are highly trained in their interview techniques, which can be intimidating and overwhelming, particularly if this is your first voluntary police interview

An invitation to a voluntary police interview could indicate that you’re suspected of being involved in a crime. The police are collecting evidence and building a case, so you should always seek legal representation to avoid saying anything that may impact the proceedings. 

When you hire our knowledgeable team of Senior Criminal Defence Lawyers, you can expect extensive experience advising and attending to suspects at police stations. We will arrange the voluntary police interview on your behalf and attend with you, advising you on what to say and what not to say.
