If You Are Being Arrested Remember...

Know Your Rights When Being Arrested diverse group of people holding up signs that say Black Lives Matter

If you are being arrested remember:


  • DO NOT PHYSICALLY engage with the police
  • RAISE your arms above your head
  • DO NOT RESIST and follow all lawful commands
  • Tell the officer if you are ARMED OR UNARMED
  • Ask anyone nearby to RECORD you
  • Once you are taken into custody invoke your right to remain silent and right to counsel by stating: “I am invoking my right to remain silent and my right to counsel”
  • If they keep talking to you… REMAIN CALM AND SAY NOTHING!
  • If you make a call while detained remember the phone lines are recorded just give your name, location, and the charges.
