Do you have to talk to the police? When can a law enforcement officer stop and question you? Do you have the right to remain silent all the time? Do the police have to read you your rights before they can question you?

Encounters with the police can be intimidating, and many of us may inadvertantly waive our rights simply because we are unaware of them. Learn about your rights when dealing with the police, so you can act accordingly when faced with that situation.
