Do you know what to do when approached or detained by the police? As described by Attorney Richard Brown, the most important things you need to know are that you cannot be forced to say anything and that you have the right to consult with an attorney, and thereby terminate all questioning. Do not fall into the traps for the unwary . . . casual conversation can quickly turn to more serious discussions . . . you do not need to have written a statement down and signed it for it to be used against you . . .
