IF YOU ARE QUESTIONED ABOUT AN OFFICER-INVOLVED SHOOTING OR THE USE OF FORCE
- Do not answer questions or write a report unless you are ordered to do so. An order to answer questions means your statements and the fruits of your statements cannot be used to criminally prosecute you.
- Immediately request the presence of your attorney or union representative. Have the union representative or your attorney present when all questioning takes place.
- Remember that the statements you make to your union representative may not be privileged; statements you make to your attorney are covered by the attorney-client privilege.
- If you need to talk to a doctor, psychologist, or minister, do so.
