Just Talking

So what happens when a police officer approaches you?  Well, sometimes they aren't interested in you and pass on by, a greeting might be nice and all that is called for.  But, I would guess that most of the time if the police officer is approaching you they have a reason for it.  I mean, if I were a cop, I probably wouldn't ever interact with anybody without a reason given that I have to force interactions with people constantly as part of the job.  I'm sure Officer Friendly exists out there somewhere, but I wouldn't count on him being the guy who approaches me for no other obvious reason...

No

If the police are talking to you and you didn't invite them to do so and they ask if they can search you, your car, your house, your anything.  The answer is always "no".  Saying yes will never help you.  The reason they are asking is because they think or hope they will find something that they can then arrest you for or possibly something that their agency can keep (like money).  So never say yes.  Always say no.
