  • a police believe that if you’re calling the police to report a crime, 90% chance it’s a self report
  • if the police ask you to come to the police station, you’re a suspect. In some countries you don’t have to go to bring yourself to the station. if they lack evidence they won’t come arrest you
  • no obligation to be polite to police in exerting rights
  • it’s a crime to lie to police
  • it’s safe to talk to police during a routine traffic stop
  • don’t volunteer anymore info to police then is strictly necessary
