Why would a police officer want to question you?
- Officers may be responding to a complaint phoned into police or have received a report of some criminal activity.
- Your presence might indicate you are a possible witness with valuable information, or an officer may believe you are having trouble or need assistance.
- Remember their questions are not accusations, and your cooperative responses can ease any possible conflicts
