This presentation is Part 5 and follows Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 (see below). It has been written, and will be presented by, Colin Beaumont, author of the book – ‘A Practical Guide to Advising Clients at the Police Station’
You don’t need me to tell you that the police station, at times, can seem a very lonely place when you have a difficult client and officers who are less than fully co-operative
Important therefore that you have the confidence to meet the challenges that you will face there
It’s a fact of life that the more you know about a subject, the more confident you will be and the more effective you will be in making sure that the interests of your client are fully protected and advanced

The following 20 issues will be considered:
1 – The current position regarding the billing of police station work even though the case has not finished
2 – The tactical advantages of not committing yourself to your prepared statement too early
3 – Important to be aware of those issues at the police station in which your client has some room for manoeuvre and those issues at the police station in which your client has no room for manoeuvre whatsoever!
4 – The things that should happen under PACE and the Codes of Practice where your client has a change of heart and decides that he will go into the interview prior to your arrival at the police station
5 – The things that should happen on your arrival at the police station when your client has already gone into the interview without you
6 – What we mean by ‘possession’, ‘making’, ‘distribution’ as regards indecent images
7 – Your client’s DNA has been found on a hat at the scene – how significant, evidentially speaking, is this?
8 – The police give you written disclosure and then want to put you into an interview in order to give you the opportunity to ask questions on the written disclosure – all of this in the absence of your client – how you going to respond to this request?
9 – Does the Bail Act 1976 apply in just the same way at the police station as it applies in Court?
10 – Are you up to speed with the ‘necessity criteria’ contained in Section 24 of PACE? – See also Code G of the Codes of Practice in this area
11 – Do medical records created at the police station form part of the custody record?
12 – 2 clients of the firm have been arrested in relation to murder – which of these clients are you going to see 1st and what is the danger of seeing them both?
13 – Name 3 classic defences which might lend themselves to a prepared statement being read out rather than advising the client to answer the questions in the interview
14 – Are you in danger of waiving legal professional privilege where you say at the outset of the interview that your client will be having a ‘no comment’ interview upon your advice?
15 – It seems to me that there are 2 options available to you when you know that your client is lying to the police in the interview – which option are you going to choose and what are the pros and cons of each?
16 – Your 1st client would like you, if possible, to look after the interests of his mate who has been arrested in the same matter – does this provide you with instructions to make an approach to the 2nd client?
17 – In what classic circumstances might you find yourself in a conflict situation at the police station?
18 – Who are the potential prosecution witnesses against your client whilst he or she is detained and under investigation at the police station stage?
19 – Would it be permissible for your client put his jumper over his head whilst being interviewed by the police in a case where identification/recognition is not an issue?
20 – In what circumstances may the prosecution be asking the Magistrates’ to grant what is colloquially known as a ‘3-day lie-down’?
