ID parades

Estimated reading: 1 minute 11 views

The police may ask you to participate in a line up, where the witness is asked to identify the person who committed a crime. The police cannot force you to participate in an identification parade. If you participate in such a line up, you risk being mistakenly identified as the offender. You should refuse to participate in any identification parade or line-up until you have spoken to a lawyer.
