Have you been asked to attend a voluntary police interview?
If you have been asked to attend a voluntary interview – also known as a caution plus 3 interview – you will be required to attend the police station at a specified date and and time, where you will be asked to assist the police with their enquiries into a suspected criminal offence.
While you are not under arrest at the time of a voluntary interview, the police will caution you before the interview takes place. The interview will be recorded and anything you say during the interview may be used as evidence in court, if the case reaches that stage. During a voluntary interview, you are free to leave the police station at any time, unless the police arrest you.
Expert independent legal advice from an experienced solicitor can make all the difference to ensure you don’t incriminate yourself during your interview, or have your words misinterpreted by a police officer who may have already decided you’re guilty before you’ve even arrived for your interview.
You are entitled to receive independent legal advice whether you are giving a voluntary interview or a standard interview under caution. A voluntary police interview is as serious as a police interview under caution, so it is important to seek expert legal advice ahead to ensure your rights are protected and you are treated fairly.
At Lawtons, we have plenty of experience in representing our clients at voluntary police interviews. We can arrange the interview with the police at a time and date to suit you, ensuring you are represented by a specialist criminal defence solicitor, whatever the alleged offence and wherever the interview takes place.
