The Right to Know Law requires officers to identify themselves at the beginning of encounters and to give the reason for the stop. If the encounter does not end in an arrest, the officer must provide a business card with the officer’s name, rank, shield number and the addresses and telephone numbers of the department’s internal affairs unit and the city’s citizen review board in case the person stopped wants to submit comments or complaints about the encounter.
