Young people at the police station – an overview

Posted on 24th July 2020

Early legal advice at the police station is especially important for young people under the age of 18 years. Attendance at the police station can be a frightening experience for both the young person and their parent or guardian. Regardless of whether the young person is attending the police station voluntarily or has been arrested, they are entitled to free, independent, legal advice. A legal representative can help guide the young person through the interview process and enable them to make informed decisions.
