The Police want me to go to the station. What should I do?

You have to go with the police if you are being formally arrested for an offence or you are being formally detained for questioning about an indictable offence.


You can also be required to go to a police station for a blood/breath test in relation to a drink/ drug driving offence.


If police ask you to accompany them to the station in a circumstance distinct from those above then you can decline to go with them.


If you have been asked to attend a police station for any reason it is best to seek legal advice before attending.
