No one ever plans on being arrested. But with everything happening today, it is good to be prepared and to know your rights.
A new arrest support hotline and website is being piloted in the Bronx. Good Call is a free 24/7 hotline (347-95-Bronx) that anyone can call if they or a loved one get arrested. They will receive valuable information about the process and their rights- and have a lawyer assigned to their case right away. Good Call also has a website that allows individuals to sign up and enter the contact information of their loved ones, so they can be alerted in the case of an arrest.
This service is currently piloting in the Bronx with plans to expand to other boroughs in a couple of months. For more information or to sign up, visit goodcall.nyc
