FYI – Guide to dealing with the Police – Pivot Legal

Pivot Legal has created a Street Stop flowchart (carding?). The steps and questions are suggestions rather than guaranteed approaches. You can also consult a lawyer or review the Ontario Legal Aid Guide .


Chart - Text Below

Street Stop Flow Chart

An officer walks up to you. You ask:
“Am I free to go?
If YES – Walk away.
If NO – Ask “Am I under under arrest?” Then
If YES “You are under arrest
If NO “You are being retained”
Then ask More questions:‘Why am I under arrest/being detained?”“Can I have your name/badge number?”“I want to speak with my lawyer.”“I want to remain silent.”
You don’t have to say anything to police unless you are:
  • under arrest;
  • driving a car/involved in a car accident; or 

You must provide the name and address of the owner. If the bike/car is not your own, you must also provide the name and address of the owner.
