What Happens in a Police Interview?

Information about police interviews in Queensland

If you’re involved in a criminal investigation, you might be asked to participate in a recorded interview.

There is a risk involved in participating in one of these police interviews before you have spoken to a lawyer. Anything that you do or say in a police interview will be recorded and could be used against you at a later stage. For this reason, it’s a good idea to gain legal assistance before you speak with police.

You have the right to remain silent. If you haven’t spoken with a lawyer, it’s a good idea to exercise this right and make contact with a lawyer as soon as possible.

If you’re contacted by police as part of an investigation, you can contact us immediately at Brooke Winter Solicitors. We can talk with you about your case – as well as what happens in a police interview.
