Been asked to attend a voluntary interview?
In the event that you are asked to attend a voluntary interview, in order to assist the police with their enquiries, it is essential that you attend the police station at the time specified.
Bear in mind that during a voluntary interview (also referred to as a caution plus 3 interview) you are not under arrest, but the police will caution you prior to the interview and everything you say will be recorded. Your evidence may be used in court.
For this reason it is vital to make sure that you don’t incriminate yourself by accident or say something that could invite misinterpretation from the police officers interviewing you, either due to prejudice or because of a genuine mistake. You should seek expert legal advice in order to ensure this.
Despite the voluntary nature of the interview, it is every bit as serious as an interview conducted under police caution and you are entitled to independent legal advice. Nevertheless, provided that the police decide not to arrest you, you may leave the police station at any time during your voluntary interview.
At Lawtons, our years of experience in client representation, regardless of the alleged offense, means that we are well placed to support you throughout the voluntary police interview process.
One of our specialist criminal defense solicitors will arrange your interview at the best time and date for you. They will also be on hand to support you during the interview itself.
Make sure that you seek out advice from legal experts before your voluntary police interview to ensure fair treatment and the very best outcome for yourself.
