When you’re talking with the police after a self-defense situation, the USCCA recommends you:
- Comply: Follow all police instructions.
- Explain: “I was attacked, feared for my life & had to defend myself.”
- Identify: Point out evidence, witnesses, and attacker.
- Medical: Request medical attention, if necessary
- Silence: “I will cooperate 100%, but first I need my attorney.”
(Do not talk further without your lawyer present.)
