Was Arrest at Police Station Necessary?
Published: 31st January 2012
We have recently secured damages for wrongful arrest/detention when it was agreed that it was not necessary to arrest a suspect and that the officer should have considered whether or not questions/evidence could have been obtained via an alternative to arrest. Consequently, DNA, photographs and prints obtained have now been destroyed.
If you feel that you may have been in a similar situation, then please contact Gerard Casey, Sarah Dixon or Darren Wheater in our Crime Department on 01226 210000.
