Stay calm and in control of your words, your emotions, and your body. Don’t get into an argument with the police.
Remember, anything you say or do can be used against you.
Do not run. Do not touch any police officer. Do not resist even if you believe you are innocent.
Do not complain at the scene or tell the police they are wrong.
Do not make any statements regarding the incident. Do not consent to any searches.
Ask for a lawyer immediately if you are arrested.
Remember officer’s names and badge numbers, if possible.
Try to find witnesses and their names and telephone numbers.
If you are injured, take photographs of the injuries as soon as possible, but make sure you get medical attention first.
Never bad-mouth a police officer.
