Been asked to attend a voluntary interview?
A voluntary interview is also known as a caution plus 3 interview. You will assist the police and answer any questions they may have regarding the suspected offence. If you are invited to attend a voluntary interview at Stevenage police station, it is important to make sure that you arrive on time.
You are not under arrest for the duration of a voluntary interview. Nevertheless, you will be cautioned before the interview. Bear in mind that everything you say will be recorded and could be used later in a range of situations, including as a testimony in court.
For this reason it is essential to seek legal support in order to make sure that your interests are protected. During a voluntary police interview your statements have the potential to be misinterpreted by police in a way that is not advantageous to you. A voluntary police interview is therefore as serious as an interview under police caution.
Bear in mind that, unlike an interview under caution, you do have the option of leaving the police station if you want to. You can leave at any point during your voluntary interview.
At Lawtons, we have extensive experience representing clients at all stages of the voluntary interview process. One of our highly qualified team of criminal defence solicitors will support you whatever the alleged offence, as well as arranging the interview on a date and at a time that suits you.
Ensure that you seek advice from legal experts before your voluntary police interview in order to achieve the best outcome for you.
