Every day, people are stopped and questioned, ticketed, detained or arrested by police. Often times, those people are largely unaware of not only their basic legal rights, but also how to interact with police officers. Being an uninformed, unprepared citizen may lead to simple misunderstandings, illegal searches or seizures, excessive force and more. Take control and get informed with “10 Rules for Dealing with Police.”
This DVD is a professionally produced, educational resource with a runtime of approximately 40 minutes. Narrated by famous trial lawyer William Murphy Jr. (whose firm’s corporate clientele includes organizations ranging from the Baltimore Orioles and the Washington Redskins to Sony and Microsoft), “10 Rules for Dealing with Police” is an entertaining yet accurate look at how to calmly deal with police in several different situations. It will teach you your basic legal rights and how to avoid unnecessary interrogations, searches, seizures, detentions and arrests.
It is perfect for:
- Educators – Liven up your lesson on the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights
- Parents – Help your children become responsible, contributing citizens
- Police – Great training tool for promoting responsible police work
- Activists – Perfect for civic associations and other political advocacy
