A ‘chat’ at the police station......

So, you’ve received a request from the police asking you to attend the police station for a ‘chat’ about something that has taken place.....Just to ‘give your side’

Do you take representation?


YES!!

Even if you think...

You haven’t been arrested, so it can’t be serious...

It was a family matter...

It was weeks ago...

It was self defence, I’ll just tell them that...

They’ll think I’m guilty if I take a solicitor ...

It’ll take longer ...

The police will go harder on me...

After all, it’s just a chat, right?

Even when you are being asked to attend a police station for a chat, this is a formal procedure. You will be booked in. You may be asked for your fingerprints. You will be asked questions about your involvement in a criminal offence, under caution!

This will be recorded!

This ‘chat’ is a voluntary interview and the only difference between this and one that is taking place whilst a person is in custody is that you can arrive and leave of your own accord.

If you ever find yourself in this position please contact us.

We will contact the police officer on your behalf and make suitable arrangements. I will speak to the police officer prior to your interview and obtain enough information to be able to advise you on your best course of action. I will support you though the interview and then I will keep you up to date on the outcome.

At the police station you have the right to legal advice, it’s FREE and it’s for an expert to support you though a potentially life changing situation, even if you feel like you don’t need it.....
