If You Are Stopped By The Police – Know Your Rights

These are suggestions from the ACLU of Southern California (www.aclu-sc.org). Be sure to consult a lawyer for complete legal advice.

If you are stopped, especially if you are wrongfully stopped, stay calm. Remember, what you say can be used against you. You do not have to answer a police officer’s questions, but you must show your driver’s license and registration when stopped in a car. If your rights are violated, do not try to deal with the situation at the scene. Talk to an attorney afterwards, or file a complaint with the police department’s Internal Affairs or civilian review.
