The memo of arrest must detail the name of the arrested person, the time, date and place of arrest along with reasons for the arrest and what the suspected offence is.
An Arrest Memo or ‘Memo of Arrest’ is a document that the police must file at the time of arrest or immediately on bringing the arrested person back to the police station. It acts as a safeguard against illegal detention by the police.
It has to be signed by the police, two independent witnesses and the arrested person in order to ensure that the memo accurately details all of the facts.
