Protect your rights before an arrest

In Oregon as elsewhere, in some instances people are arrested immediately after some event has taken place. For example, a fight may immediately lead to assault charges. However, there are also many situations where police undertake an investigation before an arrest is made. In these cases, police may gather evidence from a variety of sources in order to get the information they need to bring charges.

These sources could include an undercover investigation, a search of a person's property, speaking to witnesses or others in the community or trying to speak with the individuals themselves. In these cases, those accused of criminal wrongdoing have legal rights. A person's constitutional rights don't just go into effect when charges are brought. Instead, people have constitutional rights to protect them from the beginning of a police investigation.

It is important that Oregon residents understand these constitutional rights. In many cases, proactive steps can be taken in order to protect these rights before police gather the information they need to even bring criminal charges
