Police DrillAn image circulating social media sites shows that Fresno Police will be conducting a realistic training drill on Monday June 29, 2015. During the training, uniformed officers, and realistic gunfire may be seen and heard. Members of Cop Block Fresno, and the Fresno Liberty Movement will be in the area to observe and report on the police activity.

If you live in the area of Belmont and Calaveras, please have a camera handy and remember these tips.

  1. Film the interaction. It is very important to have an objective record of what happened. It also might save your life, or protect your rights.
  2. Ask if you are “being detained or free to go”
  3. Remain silent. Ask only if “you are being detained or free to go” Do not answer questions without a lawyer present.
  4. Refuse warrantless searches. Police need a warrant, or reasonable articulate suspicion to search your person, vehicle or house.
  5. Be polite but firm. Assert yourself in a professional firm manner. Do not allow them to intimidate you or take advantage of you.
