Police have the right to search if they have ‘reasonable suspicion’ you may have something unlawful in your possession. If a police dog sits next to you, if you smell or look drug-affected, or if you look like you’re trying to hide something – they’re all examples of ‘reasonable suspicion’.
There’s no need to admit or deny anything at this stage. Be pleasant and co-operative, but don’t volunteer information.
If you are charged, you’ll generally be issued with a Field CAN – a court attendance notice. There’s not much you can do about it at this stage, so go and have fun and call us on Monday (or sooner, if it’s stressing you and you want to get some advice asap).
If you are arrested and taken to the police station, please CALL US:

We recommend you don’t agree to any police interviews until you speak to a lawyer. (It’s very rare that you should agree to a police interview, so call and talk before you make the decision. Please.) This is free advice, for your benefit. Every word you utter to police may be used against you in court, or help the police to make a case against you or a mate.
