What Every Officer Should Know

LEO Bill of Rights & Garrity

A law enforcement officer is entitled to the Law Enforcement Officers' Bill of Rights whenever that officer is under investigation and subject to interrogation by members of his/her agency for any reason which could lead to disciplinary action, demotion, or dismissal.  Routine police inquiries ad reports are not subject to the bill of rights protection since the officer is not "under investigation."  Once the questioning or report becomes focused on the officer's conduct for disciplinary purposes, then compliance with Section 112.532, Florida Statutes, is required.

Every law enforcement officer has heard about the "Garrity Rule." Generally speaking, the Garrity Rule prevents "covered statements" from a law enforcement officer "obtained under threat of removal from office" from being used in any subsequent criminal proceeding. As explained by the US Supreme Court, a law enforcement agency, in the course of a disciplinary investigation, cannot compel an office to waive the immunity provided by the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination.

Remember, if you are involved in a police shooting, in-custody death or serious traffic accident:

  1. Stay calm
  2. Call the Tampa PBA at (813) 228-8900
  3. Ask to speak to a PBA Attorney
  4. Do not talk to anyone until you have consulted with your PBA attorney
