Know What To Do When Stopped By Law Enforcement (Infographic)

| by Khier Casino

We rely on the police to protect the public and treat us fairly, no matter what race, ethnicity, where you came from or what your religion is. But do you know what to do if you are stopped or confronted by law enforcement?

A newly released infographic by Online-Paralegal-Programs.com offers Americans tips for interacting with police and understanding what rights they do and do not have when coming face to face with an officer of the law.

According to The Blaze, the detailed infographic includes information about filming a police encounter, DUI stops and requirements to show ID, which varies for each state. It also shows how to handle refusing a search.

The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
