ID parades

Estimated reading: 1 minute 64 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.

This is known as an “ID parade”

The police cannot force you to participate in an identification parade.

If you do participate, 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.
