Normally, if the boys in blue show up, I'd say confront them first. Tell them what you're doing. Offer to show some pics you've taken. A lot of the time I've just been asked to leave after they realized I've just got a camera and a tripod. I think some other guys on this site have told of similar situations where cops even let them stay for a bit after showing up. Transparency and honesty will get you a long way. Again though, if you set an alarm off scram.

Of course non of this applies if you're caught picking locks or smashing windows.


Don't "confront" them, lol.
They are trained to take control of a situation.
Walk up to them slowly with hands visible or stand still depending on the circumstances.

Let them ask the questions, keep your answers to the point. Don't babble.
Avoid giving them extra information unless you have a damn good reason.
Think before you answer Q's but don't stall.
If you must lie, lie by omission.
Never lie when the truth would serve you better.

Don't act nervous, look them in the eyes, hands visible and be follow their commands.
Compliance goes a long way with LEOs.
Cops hate busting a nice guy but if you cross the line too far they will.
If you set off an alarm... you best be gone before they arrive and see you.

It helps to talk to LEOs when they are kicking back and have time to talk.
Learn their mindset; walk in their shoes.
Most cops are people persons...



Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

This, absolutely.

Yeah confront wasn't the best word choice there, but thanks for reiterating what I was trying to get at.

On a personal note, I need Lent to end so I can go back to coffee in the mornings and think of the right words.
