Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Generally, a police officer can never compel you to identify yourself without reasonable suspicion to believe you’re involved in illegal activity. So, if you're asked for ID, you can ask why and whether you're being detained. If there is no answer that a crime has been committed, it is not likely that the request has to be followed.
