Have you been asked to attend a voluntary interview?
A voluntary interview – also known as a caution plus 3 interview – takes place at the police station, 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 also be recorded and anything you say during the interview may be used as evidence in court, should the case proceed that far.
Expert independent legal advice can make all the difference to ensure you don’t incriminate yourself or have your words twisted by a police officer who has already decided you’re guilty before you’ve even arrived for your interview.
During a voluntary interview, you are free to leave the police station at any time, unless the police arrest you.
Despite the voluntary nature of this type of police interview, it is as serious as a police interview under caution. You are entitled to receive independent legal advice whether you are giving a voluntary interview or a standard interview.
At Lawtons, we have plenty of experience in representing our clients at voluntary police interviews. We can guide you through the interview process, arranging the interview with the police at a time and date to suit you. We will then arrange for you to be represented by a specialist criminal defence solicitor, whatever the alleged offence and wherever the interview.
It is extremely important that you seek expert legal advice ahead of a voluntary police interview, to ensure your rights are protected and you are treated fairly.
