Cases are often won or lost at the Police Station investigation stage. We have a 24 hour emergency service to respond to police station attendances at short notice throughout the UK.

Investigation Stage

The steps are usually as follows:

  • Complaint made
  • Police investigate
  • Suspect detained
  • Fingerprints, DNA, Photograph taken
  • Suspect interviewed under police Caution
  • Police obtain statements from relevant witnesses and CCTV etc
  • Forensic samples may be taken (i.e. blood, mouth swabs or DNA)


Once the Police have completed the investigation process they will have a number of options. The investigation process is normally completed by a Custody sergeant or these days the Crown Prosecution Service Lawyer, who will decide:-

  • Whether to charge the suspect to attend court
  • Bail the suspect to return to the police pending further enquiries
  • Release the suspect with No Further Action, Or
  • Issue a Fixed Penalty Notice etc


  • If charged – released on Police bail to attend Court
  • Charged – not released on bail due to seriousness of the allegations etc
