Understanding your rights at the police station

As the experts, it is our job to both understand and inform you of your rights. After your arrest, we will advise you on the following:

  • what to say, if anything, during an interview
  • your right to stay silent should you wish

the law surrounding your case

  • if you are being held at the station unnecessarily
  • if the police are efficiently carrying out an investigation

By fully understanding your rights and getting advice from the start, your defence should be stronger as you will be able to make more informed decisions.

The interview process

After your arrest, it is normal for the police to conduct an interview. The aim of this interview is to secure an account form you. This information could then be used as evidence against you in court. Draycott Browne’s legal experts are here to advise you on the best way to proceed, whether you decide to stay silent, talk to the police freely or prepare a written statement.

Receive expert legal advice from the start

Building your defence starts from the moment you are arrested. From that moment, anything you say could be used as evidence against you. Those who have been arrested can often feel pressure from the police and, in this vulnerable state, say something they would not usually say. This is why it is paramount to hire a legal defence expert who can advise you on any communication you have with the police.
