This is an exciting and innovative new concept in providing legal advice to the general public. For use in England, Wales and Northern Ireland only. The ArrestApp provides Pre-Arrest advice and, where available, the user can make contact DIRECT from the app, with a free local Legal Services Commission approved solicitor (Public Defender) 24 hours a day 7 days of the week. The ArrestApp has been designed for ease of use and as a public service. The app will provide the user with the local solicitor's name, office address and both day and out-of-hours telephone contact details. The user will also be shown their own location and, on a separate map, the location of the local solicitor's office. The services of the solicitor are FREE if the person, family member or friend is in custody, has to attend a police station or a custody centre for interview, or to be interviewed at home under caution. The app displays images of various pieces of equipment used when a person is processed into custody. There is an interactive memory test to reinforce the advice given and to highlight the reasoning for different scenarios. The user will also be able to make contact, direct from the ArrestApp, with various support services that they may find of value. We would appreciate your feedback, please email us at
