It’s more important than ever for all citizens to be prepared and know how to assert their constitutionally-protected rights when dealing with law enforcement.
The Know Your Rights Training will be taught by ACLU Speaker Kathleen Hynes, Ph.D. and will provide information and simple steps, based on constitutional protections and criminal case law, for handling interactions with police and other forms of law enforcement. Dr. Hynes will expose commonly believed myths and teach the realities about our constitutionally-protected rights. Participants in the training will learn how to keep their cool and assert their constitutional rights, if necessary, when stopped by law enforcement, as well as how to report instances of police misconduct.
For more information, please contact Dr. Bill Flanik at 970-248-1280.
