Voluntary attendance at a police station is more commonly referred to as a “Caution Plus 3”. This is because, before being questioned, the police issue the standard caution given in interviews and additionally issue 3 extra parts:
- You are not under arrest;
- You are not obliged to remain at the station;
- You are entitled to free, independent legal advice.
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.
If you are facing a Caution Plus 3 you should seek legal advice immediately.
It is vital that you receive the best advice possible and provide as much detail of the facts of your case as you can to ensure the right result for you.
