When dealing with the police, it is important to know your rights. The Winnipeg criminal lawyers at Saheel Zaman Law Corporation get many calls a month from people who have been asked to go to the station to be interviewed by the police in relation as a suspect in a case to a criminal investigation. We also get calls from people who have already gone in for a police interview and are concerned about what occurred and what they said to the police. If the police contact you to come in for a police interview (or if the police ask you to give a statement over the phone), your response should be: "I want to speak with a lawyer first." In this article, our Winnipeg criminal lawyers will discuss how getting advice from a lawyer in advance can protect you in a police interview.
