This brochure describes some of your rights under the law when interacting with the police
in New York State and offers some strategies for protecting your rights during police encounters. We know that the reality is that police officers often don’t respect our rights, and that there can be a risk that asserting your rights during a police encounter may escalate the situation. Knowing your rights is critical to recognizing when they have been violated, and exercising them in the moment can help you assert them later in court. We encourage people to assert their rights calmly and respectfully and to trust their instincts to protect their safety. If you feel your rights have been violated, tell your lawyer!
