Interviewing employees under suspicion

13. If the police have decided to pursue an investigation, they must be involved at an early stage in accordance with this policy and they will make any decisions regarding interviews. Otherwise, the decision to interview any employee(s) under suspicion of committing fraud is to be made by a Director or Executive Director.

14. Any such interviews must be conducted under the provisions of Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (opens in new tab) and under properly controlled conditions in order to ensure that any statement taken, which may be subsequently used as evidence in a court case, will not be rejected as inadmissible. The investigator will be responsible for ensuring the appropriate guidelines and codes of conduct are followed in interviewing suspects.
