Police interviews of suspects, late nineteenth century England

Googled: various combinations and Boolean searches using:

"police interviews" "police procedures" "police station" "arrest" "suspect/s" "records" "transcripts" "nineteenth century" "England"

Came across references to one or two academic articles which might have been informative had I had access :-( Otherwise little useful to me.

Also looked at some social history books about crime and punishment but they didn't show enough nitty gritty.

Basically, how much information would police have given a suspect after arrest and once at the Police station (but before appearing before the magistrate) as to not only the basic grounds for their arrest, but the details of the alleged crime, who were the witnesses against them, etc.?

Thanks.
