Guide to the arrest and investigation process

Being arrested and facing a criminal investigation can be a very daunting and stressful experience. A criminal conviction (which includes a ‘Caution’) can have a serious effect on your life, particularly as most employers now require a police records check.

Furthermore, it is worth noting that any ill-judged decisions made at the police station following an arrest could have detrimental consequences for your case further down the line – which is why

it is important to seek specialist advice from an experienced criminal defence solicitor at the earliest possible opportunity.
