Know Your Rights Workshops, Northern BC

February 7, 2018

Northern BC
2:00 pm

Taking place in a number of communities in Northern BC, we will be providing a series of free workshops on your rights when dealing with police and what to do if your rights are not respected.

Have you ever wondered –

  • What your rights are when stopped by police on the street and asked questions?
  • When the police are allowed to search you, your belongings, your car, or your house?
  • What your rights are when the police detain or arrest you?
  • How you can make a complaint against a police officer who is not respecting your rights?
  • Who is responsible for responding to complaints made against police officers who are not respecting the rights of the public?
  • What happens when a person is seriously harmed or dies while in police custody?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, this workshop is for you!
