The Appropriate Adult role is to facilitate communication, ensure the suspect’s rights are respected and upheld, ensure the police interview is conducted properly and fairly and that interviewing officers take the vulnerability of the suspect into account. It is a role usually undertaken by parents or carers who often have little, if any, understanding, knowledge or experience of police investigative procedures and who may be too overwhelmed by the experience and emotionally involved to make their presence meaningful.
