Procedure | Criminal Defence Lawyers
If you’re arrested the Jersey police must:
- identify themselves as the police
- tell you that you’re being arrested
- tell you what crime they think you’ve committed
- explain why it’s necessary to arrest you
- explain your rights
- explain to you that you’re not free to leave
If you’re arrested you’ll usually be taken to a police station, held in custody in a cell and then questioned. When in custody at a police station , you are entitled to free criminal law advice and representation, no matter what the time of day. If you find yourself arrested, it can be a highly stressful situation that can have life changing consequences.
