Detainee and Police Intervention Handbook - Casa Paraula

Detainee’s Handbook


When facing situations such as a home entry and search or being detained by the police, it is crucial to be aware of your rights and know what to expect.

This handbook has been created to provide you with clear and concise information about the legal procedures that apply in these circumstances. From understanding your rights during a home entry and search to knowing your rights when being detained, we will address each relevant aspect. Additionally, we will also address common questions regarding personal belongings, electronic devices, traveling by car, having a minor or an adult with special needs with you during the detention, and how to navigate being a family member of a detainee. Our aim is to equip you with the necessary tools to understand and protect your rights in these situations, offering practical guidance and peace of mind during challenging times.
