10 Rules for Dealing with Police, a 40-minute educational drama, is the most sophisticated and entertaining film of its kind.

Through extensive collaboration with victims of police abuse, legal experts and law enforcement professionals, Flex Your Rights has developed a powerful multi-language (English, Spanish & Arabic) resource that provides proven survival strategies for dealing with racial profiling and police abuse.

10 Rules testimonials:

"The 4th Amendment has been on life support during both the Bush-Cheney and Obama administrations. The clearest and most constitutionally-grounded guide for all of us against this government contempt for our 4th Amendment rights is 10 Rules for Dealing with Police. It should be shown in schools, in local legislatures and in Congress.
Nat Hentoff

"I believe 10 Rules will make an extraordinary contribution to the cause of social justice. Only those police officers who disregard the law have something to fear from its message. As an ex-cop, I thank Flex Your Rights for all you’ve done and continue to do."
Norm Stamper, Ph.D., Former Chief of the Seattle Police Department & Author of Breaking Rank: A Top Cop’s Expose of the Dark Side of American Policing

Dr. David E. Barlow, Professor and Chair, Department of Criminal Justice, Fayetteville State University & Author of Police in a Multicultural Society

"As the criminal justice system continues to target people of color, 10 Rules is an essential first line of defense. While some elements of our government nationwide still cling to weak denials about profiling, this film provides valuable information that can protect people of color while we insist on long-term solutions to end bias-based policing."
William H. Buckman, William H. Buckman Law Firm (see New York Times profile)

"Good community policing is impossible when officers disrespect constitutional rights. 10 Rules will help citizens understand their rights and ensure that law enforcement is professional and accountable to the public."
Ronald E. Hampton, Executive Director of the National Black Police Association & former Community Police Officer for the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department

Rev. Reginald T. Jackson, Executive Director, Black Ministers’ Council of New Jersey & Pastor, St. Matthew A.M.E. Church
