DO I HAVE TO GO IF THE POLICE ASK ME TO COME TO THE STATION?

No, not unless the police are arresting you.

If the police want to question you about a crime that you might be witness to or are suspected having a part in then, they must summon you to the police station in writing.

If you are simply walking down the road or are at home, having committed no offence then the police cannot ask you to come with them without stating a solid reason and you are within your rights to refuse to go with them.

Women or children below 15 can only be questioned by the police in their homes. They can never be summoned or forced to go to a police station.
