Police Interactions ? What to do when you deal with police

Your basic legal rights and responsibilities may not always be clearly defined by law enforcement officials. If stopped or
detained, politely ask the police officer “why” in a manner that is not confrontational. Remember, your priority should be to
alleviate or minimize the potential charges and/or use of excessive force against you. In some states, there are no clear
statutes or laws which delineate the use of deadly force by law enforcement officials. In theses instances, the courts will
decide, on a case-by-case basis, what is considered deadly or excessive force.

About Consent Counts

NCSF is leading a major national campaign—Consent Counts—to change the laws and police practices that our communities now endure, and to establish that consent is available as a defense in criminal BDSM prosecutions.

  • BDSM is prosecuted as assault in the U.S., even when it is consensual.
  • No state or appellate court has allowed consent as a defense to assault in BDSM cases.
  • Consent Counts is a nationwide project to decriminalize consensual BDSM.
 
Program Goals:
Consent Counts
is a nationwide project to decriminalize consensual BDSM through education, advocacy, legal actions and lobbying.
