The RSPCA sometimes call upon the Police to help them. They insist that they want to want to interview you and persuade the police to arrest you so that they may do so.

The RSPCA do not have the right to conduct an interview at a Police Station.

This is a guide to your rights on arrest.

  • The police will caution you.
  • Our suggested response:-

    "I have no comment to make until I have taken legal advice"


  • Keep calm and do not panic.
  • Think before you talk.
  • Anything you say can later be used against you.
  • There is no such thing as a "friendly chat" to sort things out.
  • Do not discuss the case with the police until you have consulted privately with a solicitor.
