I haven’t done anything wrong but the police have asked me for my name, ID and address. I have agreed to or been taken to the police station so that the police can ask me questions. If the police ask you to go to the station with them, you should ask if you’re under arrest. Before the police interview you, they have to tell you that you can call a friend or family member and a lawyer.

Sex work may vary in the degree to which it is more or less “formal” or organised, and in the degree to which it is distinct from other social and sexual relationships and types of sexual economic exchange.1 On average, sex workers are 10 times more likely to become infected with HIV than adults in the general population.2 However, there are significant variations between regions and countries.
In low- and middle-income countries, HIV prevalence among sex workers is an estimated 12%.3 In four countries, HIV prevalence is 50 times higher than in the general population.4 One study of 16 countries in sub-Saharan Africa found an average HIV prevalence of 37% among sex workers.
If you’re under arrest, the police can generally keep you for up to 4 hours. This means you don’t have to say anything in an interview except your name and address.Explore this page to find out more about why sex workers are at particular risk of HIV transmission, preventing HIV and successful prevention programmes, barriers to accessing HIV prevention services, removing barriers and the way forward for sex workers.Sex workers are among the highest risk groups for HIV. The police have come up to me and asked to search me and my belongings. If you think the police don’t have a good reason to ask for your details, or to search you, it is a good idea to ask for their name, rank, and place of duty. The officer must tell you that you don’t need to answer their questions, but that anything you do or say can be used later as evidence (proof that you did something) in court.
