Do I have to answer Police questions?

If you are questioned by a police officer in relation to a possible offence, you are only obliged to inform police of your name and address. Police can also ask for proof of identity.

You should NOT answer any other questions put to you by police until you are able to contact a lawyer.

You should be aware that police will often record their conversations with you from their first point of contact. You should not answer any questions until you speak with a lawyer, now matter how innocent the questioning may seem.
