ACLU's training series on interacting with authorities returns Thursday to Algiers Regional Library. It's an adult program, but teens are welcome to attend.

This is part of a series designed to instruct citizens on what our legal rights are when dealing with police. Past workshops have been driven by participants' questions, but generally ACLU is able to offer information on common points of confusion such as: Do you have to produce ID when asked? Can you photograph a police officer? How long can you be held for questioning without being charged with a crime? Can a police officer enter your home or search your car without your consent?

Knowing the answers to these questions can help you remain calm during traffic stops and any other incidents that involve authority figures.

The workshop begins at 6 p.m. Admission is free.
