Palm Card: What to Do If You're Stopped by the Police (English and Spanish) (2011)

We all recognize the need for effective law enforcement, but we should also understand our own rights and responsibilities — especially in our interactions with the police.

This card tells you what to do if you are stopped, arrested, or injured in your encounter with the police, and how to file a complaint.

Keep the card handy! If you have a police encounter, you can protect yourself.
