Advice and guidance for young people if they're arrested.

Being arrested can be a frightening experience especially if it’s for the first time.

If the police arrest you, they will take you to the police station to the custody suite. Young people are entitled to free independent advice, either from a lawyer of your choice if you know one, or the police will call the duty solicitor.

It is important that you tell the police things that will help them to look after you such as medication you're taking or any health needs you have.
