What are my rights? 
It is important to know and assert your rights. Listed below are some things you should know if you are confronted by a police officer.


You have the right to remain silent.
You are under no obligation to answer questions, and you cannot be punished for remaining silent.  If you choose to assert this right, you should do so out loud, making the officer aware that you will not answer his or her questions. 

You have the right to speak with an attorney.
If you have been arrested, you should ask for an attorney immediately.  The officer must then allow you to call your attorney, or one must be provided for you. 

You have the right to deny permission for a search.
If an officer asks to search your vehicle or your home, you DO NOT have to say yes.  It is your right to deny the officer permission to conduct a search, and the officer usually must obtain a warrant before doing so unless certain emergency and precautionary measures are necessary.
