You have the right to speak to a lawyer. Ask police for a phone so you can speak to a lawyer
You can ask for a translator if English
is your second language.
IF YOU ARE RELEASED
ON SCENE: Contact a lawyer, Legal Aid Alberta, or Calgary Legal Guidance (403 234 9266). You will have fingerprinting and court dates you need to attend. Missing those will lead to more charges. Write down for yourself later what happened with police to help you remember.
IF YOU ARE TAKEN TO THE
POLICE STATION: You have a right to a bail hearing within 24 hours of arrest. Duty counsel (a free lawyer) is available to help you. DO NOT RUN YOUR BAIL HEARING YOURSELF WITHOUT A LAWYER.
