Hartford Bondsman Shares 3 Things You Should Never Say to a Police Officer December 21, 2016

Hartford Bondsman Shares 3 Things You Should Never Say to a Police Officer, ,

A quick Google search and you’ll find numerous stories of people arrested for strange things—like possession of a spoon with SpaghettiO® residue mistaken for drugs or swearing in public. But whether you’re wrongfully taken in or you admit to enjoying SantaCon a little more than you should have, you should remain calm and think before you speak. 

If police arrest you for allegedly committing a crime, it is important not to say or do anything while in custody that might make your situation worse. Your one and only priority when you or a loved one is in jail should be posting bail. After arranging bail with a local bondsman, you can contact an attorney and start building your defense. If you need a bail bond agent in Hartford, CT, turn to 3-D Bail Bonds for the fastest personalized service in the area.

In 2015, law enforcement made almost 11 million arrests, so the bondsmen at 3-D Bail Bonds want to share crucial information about what not to say if you find yourself in this situation. 

3 Things You Should Never Say to a Police Officer

1. “It Was An Accident.”

You should not say anything that might incriminate you further while in custody. This includes apologizing for your actions or claiming that the criminal activity was an accident or a mistake. By apologizing, you are acknowledging that you are responsible, which may not be the best strategy for your particular situation.

2. “I Will Talk If You Grant Me Immunity.”

imagePolice do not have the authority to make deals with defendants or to negotiate plea bargains. They may imply that they have such authority or that they want to help you, but they do not actually have such power. Do not attempt to negotiate with police—or anyone else—until you talk to an attorney.

3. “Yes, I Consent To A Search Because I Have Nothing To Hide.”

Police may only conduct a search under specific circumstances. For example, they can only search your car if they have a warrant or if you have given them probable cause that you are engaging in criminal activity. If police ask you to consent to a search, you have every right to say no. Even if you do not have anything to hide, it is typically in your best interests to deny a search. What if your friends left something incriminating in your vehicle without your knowledge? If you consent to a search, police may then use anything they find as evidence against you during your trial.
