Been asked to attend a voluntary interview?
A voluntary interview at the police station is also known as a caution plus 3 interview. If you are invited to a voluntary interview, be prepared to assist the police and answer any enquiries that they might have about the alleged offence.
Make sure that you attend the voluntary interview on time. Before the interview you will be cautioned, but bear in mind that you are not under arrest for the duration of the interview. You are therefore free to leave the police station at any time, should you choose to do so.
Nonetheless, a voluntary police interview is no less serious than if you were being interviewed under full police caution. The police will record everything you say, and the testimony you provide may be used later in court.
For this reason it is essential to make sure that your interests are protected. It is advisable to seek legal support to ensure that your statements are not misinterpreted by the police to your disadvantage.
At Lawtons, we are a team of highly qualified solicitors with years of experience in criminal law. From arranging an appropriate time and date for the interview to providing representation during it, we support our clients throughout the whole process.
In order to achieve the best possible income from your voluntary interview, you should always seek qualified legal support from professionals.
