Top 10 Tips for Dealing with Law Enforcement

Premier Criminal Defense Attorney in Colorado

It is always wise to know how to behave when confronted with a police officer when in a situation of a possible arrest. Avoiding certain actions can make a big difference in how you are charged and the eventual outcome of your case. A criminal defense lawyer from Cantafio & Song PLLC can assist you in defending against criminal charges. Below are some of the top 10 tips for dealing with law enforcement.

Rule #1 - Always remain calm and be polite and respectful. A bad attitude will only escalate the situation.

Rule #2 - Remain silent. You have a right not to incriminate yourself. Exercise that right and do not answer questions.

Rule #3 - Do not consent to a search. You have the right to refuse to the search of your automobile and home. Exercise that right and refuse to consent to any searches.

Rule #4 - Cops lie. Do not get tricked or confused. It is well established that law enforcement officers are allowed to trick and outright lie to you.

Rule #5 - Ask if you are free to leave. If you are free to leave, exercise that right and leave.

Rule #6 - Don't do dumb things in public. Do not be an easy target.

Rule #7 - Do not flee or run from a contact with law enforcement. They will chase you, and you will get hurt.

Rule #8 - Never make physical contact with a law enforcement officer. If you act in an aggressive manner, the cops will too. You will lose and aggravate the situation.

Rule #9 - If you observe law enforcement misconduct, report it.

Rule #10 - Ask to speak with your attorney sooner rather than later. You always have the right to speak with an attorney. Exercise that right and get good, competent counsel to help you through any situation involving law enforcement.

Contact a skilled Colorado criminal defense lawyer immediately if you are arrested on any criminal charge.
