What to do if you are stopped by the police

Here are four important things to remember if you are stopped by the police:

  • You have the right to remain silent.
  • If you want to exercise that right, say so out loud.

  • You have the right not to be searched.
  • If you are asked whether you are willing to consent to a search, you can say no.

  • You can ask if you are under arrest.
  • If you are not under arrest, you have the right to calmly leave.

  • If you are in custody, you have the right to speak to a lawyer.
  • You can call an attorney at Wermerskirchen and Blomquist at any time.
