In Legal Terms: Police Stop and Search

We’re joined by Professor Matthew Hall today to learn about our rights when dealing with the police – when they stop you, when they come to your home.

On Friday, June 19, 2020, Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba signed an executive order amending the Use of Force Policy for the Jackson Police Department. It’s on the JPD website. Many police departments have website, facebook pages, and other ways you can learn about the police in your area.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol’s Thanksgiving Holiday Travel Enforcement Period concluded Sunday, November 27th, at midnight.
