When being interviewed it is important to remain calm and seek expert advice. GQS Solicitors has a wealth of experience in assisting and advising in police interviews to ensure the best result for you.
An interview is simply “the questioning of a person regarding their involvement or suspected involvement in a criminal offence”. Generally, an interview must be carried out at a police station and a caution must be administered. The standard caution which is given will usually be:
“You do not have to say anything. But it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something which you later rely on in Court. Anything you do say may be given in evidence.”
It is important to understand this caution, and the interviewing officer must ensure that the caution is understood in its entirety, including explaining the caution and even repeating it in their own words. If necessary, a language interpreter can also be made available to attend an interview.

It is vital that the appropriate response is chosen and as such legal advice should always be sought.
