Police Station Representative Accreditation Scheme (PSRAS)
This scheme deals with the accreditation of representatives who advise suspects at the police station. Most firms of solicitors who undertake criminal legal aid work use accredited representatives to advise and assist clients at police stations.
We offer several training courses to assist you in gaining accreditation as a Police Station Representative.
All of our courses are accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority as qualifying for Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
