What happens at the police station when you are arrested?

You will be asked questions about yourself, such as where you live or what your date of birth is. It is important to answer these questions truthfully and remain calm throughout the process. The police may then carry out a search of you and your property. They may also ask for a sample of your DNA (e.g. hair or finger nail) or request a bodily fluid sample. If this happens, it is important to only give consent if you feel comfortable doing so and if you have secured the advice of a criminal defence solicitor as to whether taking your DNA or bodily fluid sample is lawful in the circumstances.

You will then be taken to an interview room where the police officers will question you on anything that they believe you might be involved in. The police do not have to share the evidence they have against you, if any.
