You have the right to talk to a lawyer. You can ask the police to phone your lawyer on your behalf.
It is common for the police to request that you take part in a video recorded interview during which they will ask you a series of questions to help them determine whether to charge you.
It is very important to remember that you have the right to remain silent and you are not required to respond to their questions, other than to provide your name, address and date of birth.
We recommend that you do not participate in the interview unless you have a very good alibi and it is an obvious misunderstanding, such as you were interstate at the time of the alleged crime.
This interview is often used as a way for the police to strengthen their case and to determine whether there is enough evidence to charge you. Any admission that you make in this interview will be recorded and could potentially be used against you in court.
