Don’t allow Northridge police to intimidate you

One common trick that law enforcement will use to get a confession is to intimidate the suspect. 

They may try to scare the suspect into confessing or they may try to make the suspect feel like they are the only one who can help solve the case. Another common trick is to get the suspect to talk to detectives without a lawyer present. 

The detectives will try to get the suspect to incriminate themselves and then use this information against them in court. You have the right to remain silent, and you should exercise this right until you have an attorney present. 

If you are being interviewed by law enforcement, the best first thing to do is to politely but firmly request to contact your attorney. Your attorney will meet you wherever you are and will advise you on what to say and what not to say to detectives.
