The FBI Is at the Door! What Do I Do?

The FBI Is at the Door! What Do I Do?

It’s a moment that can inspire fear and dread in anyone-including law-abiding citizens. Police officers or federal agents from the FBI can knock on your door, unannounced, at any time. They may or may not have a search or arrest warrant in hand. They could be there to search your home, make an arrest, or simply chat with you. But what should you do to protect yourself and your family in these circumstances?

As an initial matter, keep in mind that law enforcement officials are allowed to knock on your door just to ask to speak with you, a family member, or a roommate.
