Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Did the officer not take notes instead?
This meeting has not yet gone ahead. It is scheduled to take place on Thursday 26th June 2014 at 7.00pm. My question is whether the police officer is legally allowed to record the interview in our own home and whether a solicitor should be present at this meeting.
Generally they do not record they take notes
You can refuse to allow the interview being recorded in your home
If it is at the station it will be recorded
If it is at home it is likely just notes are taken
If your partner wishes to have a Solicitor they are free to do so
The Police certainly can't stop you
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
