The myth of the Police Voluntary Interview

What are Police Voluntary Interviews?

Police voluntary interviews can be referred to as a short “chat” with the Police and can often lure you into a very false sense of security.

Please be advised:

  • It is not a chat
  • It is not necessarily voluntary
  • It is not at all to be taken lightly

Inevitably interviews with the Police are always under caution and are in fact the first step in the Police gaining evidence against you with a view to possible prosecution.
