The following tips on interacting with the police are from a pamphlet provided to us by our local NAACP Branch #7025. We hope these suggestions can offer some guidance on respectfully cooperating with the police, while knowing your rights in the process.
The introduction reads, "while we must support effective law enforcement, we must also exercise the right to ensure law enforcement works as it should- to protect all Americans regardless of race or ethnicity. This guide offers helpful suggestions on how to interact with law enforcement to reduce the probability of conflict."
