"Special Warning"

Basically when your suspect isn't cooperating and you want to give them a final chance at having their side of the story and their account and if they don't, an inference might be drawn from it if they decide to answer later after having the special warning.

Start of an interview or near the end of the interview. Put the facts to them about why you suspect them, something about an object or a weapon and you want them to account for it etc.

There are two types of special warning, they are put to a suspect at the end of an interview and have specific warning. So when it goes to court as PCGOODY rightly put it is for the court to draw an inference if the suspect does not provide an account.

From memory they are around why the suspect has not provided a sufficient account around a) why they were at a location and b) why they had a specific object or mark on them

Tend to be used by CID alot due to the crimes they handle, but can be used for volume crime as well.
