Can I have a solicitor or legal advisor at the police station?

Yes. The Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 guarantees this right to you. This means that you can speak to a solicitor or qualified legal advisor on the phone or face to face to get advice before you have to answer any questions, and you can even have your representative with you in the police interview. You are permitted to speak to them privately at any time, and questioning has to stop for this to take place if you ask for it.
