Should my daughter speak to the police regarding a possible criminal charge against her?

Question Details: I was informed that my 16 year daughter was on camera putting a card that was not hers in at a self-check at register to pay with her boyfriend. She would never use something stolen. She's in criminal justice class and knows how stupid that would be. According to the officer, this is a grand larceny situation but there's also an adult involved, as well as other people at other locations all with the same card. This adult has 58 charges of this already. My daughter has never been in trouble. She wants to go into law enforcement also. Now the officer is telling me he just wants to talk to my daughter and if she cooperates that hell go easy and that want he wants is the adult involved. Can I trust that? I don't know what to do?
