Rights of Individuals
On 15 July 2015 advertiser.com.au started a series of articles on the rights when dealing with police and authority figures with advice from the Law Society of SA.
The first article What are your rights? What South Australian law says about dealing with police and authority figures has a number of scenarios that provide a perspective and context for using these rights and identifies where compliance must occur. The first article raises awareness in a number of areas including:
- being questioned whilst driving you car
- police searches with and without warrants
- powers of councils and train inspectors
- citizen’s arrest
The full article on your rights when dealing with police and authority figures is available here .
As is always the case articles cannot deal with all complexities. We strongly advise that you seek legal advice. Call Williams
