What To Do If You Are Stopped By The Police


All persons, whether they are citizens or not, have certain rights.

1. If you are stopped by the police or other law enforcement, stay calm. Do not be rude or overly friendly. Be polite and respectful. Do not argue with them or threaten to file a complaint against them. Stay aware of and in control of what you say, your gestures, body language and emotions.
2. Never run or walk away. Keep your hands visible so that police can see your hands at all times. Do not make any sudden movements. Do not ever touch or attempt to touch the police officer.
