Misconceptions about the Law

A common misconception is that one must wait at least 24 hours before filing a missing person’s report, but this is rarely the case; in instances where there is evidence of violence or of an unusual absence, law enforcement agencies in the United States often stress the importance of beginning an investigation promptly.

Entrapment law in the United States does not require police officers to identify themselves as police in the case of a sting or other undercover work. The law is specifically concerned with enticing people to commit crimes they would not have considered in the normal course of events.

While people accused of crimes have certain rights, law enforcement does not have an obligation to tell the truth.
