If a person is taken into custody, an investigating official must ask the person whether they are an Aboriginal person—
(a) as soon as practicable after the person is taken into custody; and
(b) in any event, before any questioning or investigation under section 464A(2) commences.
Section 464FA requires that the Victorian Aboriginal Legal Service be notified if an Aboriginal person is taken into custody.
