Know My Rights app arose out of research undertaken by Dr Vicky Kemp University of Nottingham, when examining people’s understanding of their legal rights as suspects.
Instead of arresting and detaining suspects, the police now often use voluntary interviews. This means that the police will ask you to attend at a police station, or another venue, at a pre-arranged time so that they can ask you questions about a suspected offence.
There is very little information over the internet to tell people about their legal rights as suspects in voluntary interviews. This app, funded by the University of Nottingham, will help to fill this gap.
