WHO NEEDS AN INTERVIEW ROOM?

Written by Sian Hall
December 4th, 2017

In recent weeks Doncaster police seem to have largely given up on the old practice of interviewing detainees in the custody suites. A quick note in a policeman’s notebook or an interview on camera in the back of a police car seem to be sufficing.

Rather than arresting people, the police are warning them to attend the police station for the sort of informal chat that might see them on their way to the Crown Court before they know it.

This sort of informal interviewing, coupled with an apparently casual approach to questioning, that can have dire consequences, is something to look out for.

If you find that there is an officer wanting to ask you questions please remember that somebody from The Johnson Partnership is constantly available. Whether the police are proposing to interview you at your home, at a neighbourhood police station, or in the back of a police car, you are still entitled to have somebody present and we would recommend that you do.

Please contact our Doncaster office as a matter of urgency if you find yourself in this position on (01302) 360606.
