PSRAS Requirements

Law firms will usually have one or more accredited representatives (aka non-solicitor employees) who are able to go to police stations to help and advise people who are not able to access legal representation. This is typically done after the duty solicitor has made contact with the client over the phone.

The Police Station Representatives Accreditation Scheme (PSRAS) is the means through which any individual, including those with no previous legal knowledge or background, can train to provide advice and assistance at the police station for which payment is claimed from the Legal Aid Agency (LAA).

Often referred to as the police station representative course or police station accreditation scheme, the PSRAS consists of three assessments; the police station accreditation written exam, the police station accreditation portfolio and the critical incident test.
