If someone you know has been taken to Bromley Police Station after being arrested, this guide can assist you. It can be scary and daunting to go through police station procedures, but having some basic knowledge about the station and understanding what is likely to happen following the arrest can put your worries at ease. In this guide, we provide information on what to do if you are held at Bromley Police Station, how to get to the station if you need to attend an interview or pick someone up, tips on locating a solicitor, and finally offer some guidance on what is likely to happen at the station.
If you are arrested in the Bromley area, the police will likely take you to Bromley Police Station unless there is a good reason for them not to (such as excessive resource demands on the station or fear for your health and safety in being taken there).
The first thing to remember is that everyone has the right to remain silent and should not answer any questions without consulting a solicitor. You also have the right to be represented by a solicitor at any police interview. There may be a duty solicitor present at Bromley Police Station or you can contact one of the recommended solicitors for this station who should be familiar with its procedures and specific details of your case.

Bromley Police Station is located on Bromley High Street (Bromley, BR1 1ER). It is easily accessible by bus, train, and taxi and there are plenty of public parking spaces available nearby if you are travelling by car.
When you arrive at Bromley Police Station, you will be placed in an interview room and likely asked a few questions. The police may also need to take your fingerprints or photograph. They may also search your person, your bags or other possessions, and any items of clothing you are wearing. If they require a DNA sample, double-check with a solicitor if this is legally allowed in your circumstances. Not all DNA or bodily fluid sampling is lawful – the police’s powers in this respect depend heavily on the crime for which you are suspected.
You will be allowed to make a phone call if you need to contact a family member or solicitor. You have the right to speak with someone in private and typically will be given access to a phone in an interview room. This could also be done through video call – since the COVID-19 pandemic, police stations have been allowing inmates to video conference with solicitors, friends, and family.
In police interviews, you are entitled to legal representation to ensure that you do not incriminate yourself. If you are under 18, the police will arrange for an appropriate adult if required, such as a friend or relative aged 18 or over.
Once the initial questioning and search process is complete, the police can either release you with no further action taken, release you under investigation, release you on bail pending trial, or charge you with an offence and hold you until court. If released on bail, conditions will likely be set such as restrictions on where to go or who to contact.
