The reality is that arrests are much more common than one realises and it doesn’t only happen to violent criminals – but also to average citizens where speeding, outstanding fines and minor offences, for example, can land you in hot water. What’s more, the reported cases of unlawful arrests are also increasing. Should you one day find yourself in such a situation – have you thought about who you are going to call to help you out?
While it may be a minor offence, being arrested is not something you want to go through – it is a stressful experience especially if you are not sure of your legal rights and of course, the thought of spending any time behind bars is terrifying to most people. That’s why having an innovative service that can provide you with assistance in times of trouble, not only alleviates some of the stress but could also be the difference between spending unnecessary time behind bars or not.
