What happens if I am arrested?

When you are arrested, the police will usually take you to a police station or jail for booking. However, if you need medical treatment and need to go to a hospital, you will be taken there first, before you are transported to the police station or jail.

At the station, police will write down your general information on a form, a picture is usually taken along with fingerprints. You will be given an opportunity to use the telephone.
