9. How are police interviews conducted?

Police interviews are an integral part of criminal investigation. The police is obliged to caution you. You have the right against self-incrimination and so may choose to remain silent and not give statements. During questioning, the police must observe the Rules and Directions for Questioning of Suspects and Taking Statements and any breach will be taken into account when deciding whether cautioned statements are admissible as evidence.


At all times you have the right to representation and legal advice prior to and during the interview. Please refer to Question 4 for more information as to rights when making statements.
