Intimidating police uniforms
The NYPD did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
If the police detain you, they have to report to the embassy or consulate of your state.
If you think the police are doing something unlawful towards you, you can call 112 and explain.
Take note: Only an official policeman has the right to stop you.
If you don't have any documents, a policeman can detain you for up to three hours to establish your identity.
So we strongly recommend always carrying at least a copy of your ID and visa with you. If you’ve done nothing wrong you don’t have anything to worry about. The police can detain you for 15 days for resisting.
