We will not expect you to have an in-depth knowledge of any area of Police Custody or PACE (Police and Criminal Evidence Ace 1984) as you will receive full training if you are successful after interview, however, as you may be asked to apply clinical knowledge to an unfamiliar location or situation, it would be beneficial for you to gain a basic overview.
