Brochure: “You & the Police: Rights, Responsibilities & Reality”

This brochure is being made available free of charge to all members of the community. It has three purposes:
1. To outline for people their legal rights when interacting and communicating with the police;
2. To inform people of their responsibilities and obligations any time they (or a family member or friend) have contact or involvement with police officers; and
3. To promote improved relations and understanding between members of the community and the police.
