Been asked to attend a voluntary interview?
If you are invited to a voluntary interview (also known as a caution plus 3 interview) at a police station, you will be expected to assist the police questioning you. Attend on time and be prepared to answer any enquiries they might have about the alleged offence.
Although you will be cautioned beforehand, bear in mind that for the duration of the voluntary interview you are not under arrest and are free to leave the police station at any point should you choose to do so.
A voluntary police interview is as significant as an interview under police caution. Everything you say will be recorded by the police questioning you, and your testimony could be used later in court.
In order to make sure that your interests are protected during the voluntary police interview, you should therefore seek legal support to ensure your statements cannot be misinterpreted.
At Lawtons, our highly qualified criminal solicitors will represent our clients throughout the voluntary interview process, including ensuring that the meeting is at a time and on a date that will suit them and providing support during the interview itself.
You should consider seeking advice from an expert in criminal law before your voluntary police interview, in order to guarantee yourself the best possible outcome.
