The police have a right to ask questions and make general inquiries as part of an investigation. You also have the right, in most circumstances, to contact a lawyer before answering any questions. You should always be polite and cooperate regarding your name, address, etc.. Your lawyer is not entitled to be present during questioning but can offer you the best advice in what, if anything, you should say.
