Thirteen Things NOT to do if you are arrested

Praemonitus, praemunitus

1. Don’t fight/resist arrest; it just adds more charges against you.
2. Don’t run
3. Don’t talk; invoke your right to remain silent and immediately ask for a lawyer.
4. Don’t give permission to search
5. Don’t try to make a deal with the police; it is likely they are not authorized to make deals anyway.
6. Don’t believe anything the police tell you. The police can, will, and do lie to people; it’s legal for them.
7. Don’t be a smart a$
8. Don’t go back inside (your car or home/apartment/trailer) The police will follow you for their safety and anything they observe while escorting you is admissible and will probably lead to a more exhaustive legal search.
9. Don’t be a snitch. You may do so at your own risk.
10. Don’t talk in the back seat of a police car. It is recorded and police just love it when you do.
11. Don’t talk about your case from the phone at the jail. It is recorded. Your collect phone calls from the jail pays for the sophisticated recording equipment.
12. Assume you are being recorded and/or videoed. You have NO expectation of privacy in a jail.
13. Don’t talk to other inmates at the jail about the facts of your case. They may want to snitch on you to make a deal. (see number 9)



State Corrections Agencies, by and large, offer the most information to the public as they manage the largest numbers of inmates.
As you move to the local level of the criminal justice system, you will find vastly different levels of technology. Smaller jails may not have the resources to offer inmate search features to the public and likewise their jails may not offer the same amenities as their larger counterparts. Generally, the tradeoff is more personal service from smaller communities to the families and friends of inmates.
The inmate search capabilities of jail data in this state from the jails that offer inmate searches vary in search features and available information in relation to the vendor chosen by the jurisdiction and the general philosophy of the people operating the jail. Some jails believe the more information you make available to the public online makes their job easier and results in fewer phone calls requesting information. Others may believe differently and offer only a minimal amount of information to the public online, if they choose to offer it online at all. Some states allow mug shots to be posted online, while others prohibit it. (Georgia being a notable exception as it was initially allowed and then banned.)
