    Interesting Article IN Police Magazine !!!

    Hi team....

    After watching a video froma link posted in another forum on this site, I decided t go search my state's "Stop and Identify Statute" (I live in Indiana).

    I found this link to an article in instructing officers on whether someone can or cannot refuse to show proper identification. Interesting read.

    Found a second piece of "definitions"

    From an initial reading, it supports what many here have said, that refusing to produce identification documents is not, in and of itself, suspicious nor illegal. Further, I infer from the article that the overriding reason for police to want identification is to see if there are other charges that may be used to warrant an arrest.

    In the event of a traffic stop, I don't see a way to avoid providing ID. BUT, anything beyond that, such as a vehicular search, it appears that they have to have that "reasonable articulable suspicion" of criminal activity.
