It gives guidance on: mental disorder; procedures at the police station; the police interview; diversion; and appearance at the magistrates' court.;Including case law, Home Office guidelines, extracts from the PACE Code of Practice, checklists and useful addresses, this guide should prove useful to solicitors advising mentally disordered offenders.
