It is better that you don’t talk to the police without legal counsel and especially to discuss matters that are off the record. The police officer may instead use what you said against you as he is not required to honor such informal agreements. Remember that the job of the police officer is to find evidence that the prosecutor can use in the case against you and it is more likely that the police will do this job than talk to you about some things off the record. However, due to the Solicitor-client Confidentiality rule, it is possible for your lawyer to talk to the police off the record.
