Can a detective interrogate a suspect in front of the police station in public view?
2 Answers from Attorneys
Sure, Why not?
If the person lets them do it, the cops can do this anywhere. Now, whether or not any statements they make would be admissible in court depend on whether the statement was voluntary and whether or not miranda warnings were given. The location may have a bearing on whether or not any statements were voluntary, but otherwise is no different from questions asked at a traffic stop.
