Know Your Rights When Encountering Law Enforcement
Thursday, October 20th
7:00-8:30 pm in the
LARC 109 Auditorium
Colorado State University-Pueblo
Given recent events across the country, 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.
Dr. Kathleen Hynes of the ACLU of Colorado will present a “Know Your Rights” Training on Thursday, October 20th from 7:00-8:30 pm in the LARC 109 Auditorium at Colorado State University-Pueblo. This training is FREE.
The Know Your Rights Training 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.
