Rules of Police Contact
Always be Calm and Cool. A bad attitude guarantees a bad outcome.
Remain Silent. What you don't say can't hurt you.
Don't get Tricked. Remember, police are allowed to lie to you.
You have the right to Refuse Search Request! Saying No to searches can't be held against you.
Determine if you're free to Go. Police need evidence to detain you.
Don't Expose Yourself. Doing dumb stuff in public makes you an easy target.
Don't Run! They'll catch you and make you regret it.
Never Touch a Cop! Aggressive actions will only earn you a more aggressive response.
Report Misconduct. Be a good witness.
You don't have to let them in. Under most circumstances, police need a warrant to enter your home.
