Ask The Met

Introduction

Every week Metropolitan Police operators receive hundreds of calls from members of the public asking for the answers to all sorts of questions. We have gathered together the most frequently asked questions and made them and their answers available on this web site to improve our service.

How to use the FAQ site

Although we have taken every care to ensure that our answers are clear, accurate and easy to understand, the law can be quite complex when applied in different circumstances and other agencies to whom we refer may change their policies. The subjects covered may constantly change and develop.


Disclaimer

These answers should be seen in the context of general information only. They are not intended as a substitute for legal advice which takes account of your specific circumstances and any changes in the law and practice. For this advice you would need to consult your own legal adviser. No responsibility can be accepted by Metropolitan Police for any loss occasioned by any person acting or refraining from acting on the basis of these questions and answers.
