Q. What happens if a volunteer’s image is picked out in the parade?

A. If any volunteer is picked out in a parade then the parade is simply recorded as a ‘negative identification’ as the witness has failed to identify the suspect. They will not become a suspect!

A. No, anyone who is not sure about volunteering or has any questions can speak to the staff on site, no one will be forced to volunteer.
