Can Police Do That?

Murfreesboro Attorney Scott Kimberly returns to Middle Tennessee State University this month to host an event titled "Can Police Do That?" for a fifth consecutive year.

The speaking series, which provides insight into citizen rights in police-citizen encounters, is sponsored jointly by the MTSU College Democrats, the MTSU College Republicans, and the Young Americans for Liberty.

This year, the series will take place over two weeks, with all events starting at 7 p.m., on Wednesday, April 10 Wednesday, April 17. All events will be held in Room 324 in the Keathley University Center (KUC 324), at MTSU.

Kimberly will host the seminar with retired criminal defense attorney and former criminal justice instructor Richard Kimberly. Combined, Scott and Richard have over thirty years of experience in criminal law and criminal justice.

"Our primary goal is to educate attendees about how to protect themselves and exercise their rights in police-citizen encounters," Kimberly said. "In this era of political disagreement, if these three groups can find an issue that they all find important, we feel that it’s something that the public should hear."

Kimberly owns and operates The Law Office of W. Scott Kimberly, located in the Historic Smith & Sellers Building on the Murfreesboro Public Square. His criminal defense practice currently focuses on representing individuals charged with felony and misdemeanor offenses in Middle Tennessee.
