From arrest to interview – get your crime story straight.
This one-day live online workshop will unveil the real processes that follow the arrest of a suspect – who does what and how.
Find out about suspect rights and restrictions, police powers, limitations of detention and use of bail, the role of the custody officer, interviewer and solicitor, how interviews are phased and escalated, charging decisions, the CPS and court. Then write a gripping interview scene for your own story.
Expert guests include a custody officer, homicide interviewer and defence solicitor.
This workshop is part of our Crime Writing: Making it Real course series with Police Advisor Graham Bartlett. It runs on UK time, but everything’s hosted in an online classroom accessible 24/7 – so you can join us from anywhere in the world or watch the recordings back.
