Rights Cards

If you are stopped by the police it’s important to know your rights. Pivot Legal Society has created cards telling you what to say if you are stopped.

The Statement For Police half of the card can be given to the police officer after being read out. It reads:

“Officer, if I am under arrest or being detained, please tell me so.

If I am free to go, please tell me so. If I am not free to go, please tell me why.

I wish to exercise all my legal rights including my right to silence and my right to speak to a lawyer before I say anything to you.

I do not consent to be searched. I wish to be released without delay.

Please do not ask me questions, because I will not willingly talk to you until I speak to a lawyer.

Thank you for respecting my rights.”
