What is the role of the solicitor in the police station?

The Solicitor can only assist at the Police Station if the suspect/detained person exercises their basic rights whilst in custody to speak to an independent Solicitor, in private, free of charge day or night. We at Forbes operate 24 hour call out rotas covering the North West and further afield when the need arises. We will attend for any interview or identification procedure or, in circumstances where there is serious allegations of Police misconduct or the detained person is particularly vulnerable either by reason of age or infirmity.
