Criminal & Discipline – Service Police Interview or Investigation
If you have been arrested by the Service Police (RMP, RAFP, Naval Regulators or MOD Police) and face an investigation or interview under caution, or even if you have been invited to attend a voluntary interview, you have the right to consult a solicitor of your choice.
All service personnel, whatever service and regardless of their rank and income, are entitled to seek independent legal advice when arrested or to be interviewed under caution about a service or criminal offence. This is an absolute right and is also a free service.
It is important to seek advice at an early stage. How you deal with the interview under caution will determine what, if any, action is taken against you. Whether you are to be questioned about a service offence or a criminal offence, under s.42 Armed Forces Act 2006, our team of specialist lawyers can provide you with the appropriate advice and guidance.
