Police interviews

If you are suspected of committing an offence you will usually be interviewed by police, whether you have been arrested or not.

If police wish to interview you, you have a right to speak to a solicitor prior to the interview and a right to have a solicitor present during any interview.

You do not have to answer questions from a police officer unless there is a specific law which says you must answer that particular question.  A police officer will usually tell you that you are required by law to answer those questions which the law requires.

In general, it is best not to answer questions put to you by a police officer, but you should seek legal advice as to what questions you should answer.

We can provide you with advice as to which questions you should and should not answer.
