What to do if you are arrested

Stay calm and don’t resist: Ask for a lawyer immediately and say you wish to remain silent. You don’t need to make any excuses or give any explanations.

Don’t say anything or make any decisions without a lawyer: If the police have arrested you, you have the right to make a local phone call. The police cannot listen if you call a lawyer. They can and often do listen if you call anyone else.

We work with a legal team you can call for assistance.
