The Police and Youth Laws

If an officer has reasonable grounds to suspect that you have committed a crime, or are about to commit one, they have the right to arrest you and search you without a warrant. You may think some things are no big deal, but remember that they are crimes punishable by law. Falsifying your age or I.D. to get liquor isn’t a game it’s illegal and you can be charged. Is it really worth it?

A helpful hint: drinking, speeding, and loud partying only causes the community to trust young people less and the police to crack down more. Help your friends keep things under control so the police won’t have to.
