FUN & games at the police station today folks.


Not many arrests from what I've seen.  Officers scratching their heads as much as defence solicitors.

Old Rep

Any excuse for a voluntary interview  :P


had a volunteer interview at midnight, officer on nights.  wtf !?!


It may take some time to see the statistics but I'm sure we'll see a sharp fall in the no. of arrests


Represented hundreds of clients since this came into force and I've yet to see anyone released on police bail since the changes (other than those who were already on it). Police tend to exclusively release under investigation now if there are further enquiries.
