Be Smart With Police Pamphlet
The Be Smart with Police pamphlet provides youth with safe behavioral tips to help protect themselves during an encounter with law enforcement. We distribute the pamphlet at Juvenile Justice Jeopardy games, but more and more organizations are ordering copies to make available to youth they work with. It is particularly popular with kids because the tips are clear and easy to remember.
