Know Your Rights

February 10, 2017

 

 

My Rights

 

1. Silence. 

 

2. I can say “NO” if the police ask permission to search me (or my things). Saying “NO” does not mean I have something to hide. 

 

3. I can leave unless I am being detained or arrested.

 

4. If I am being detained or arrested, I have a right to know why, and a right to speak privately to a lawyer without delay—even if I can’t afford to pay. 

 

5. I can only be strip-searched in private by officers of the same sex. 

 

6. I have a right to know a police officer’s name and badge number. 

 

7. I can report a police officer who abuses me, swears at me or violates my rights.
