When a police officer approaches you in the USA, and ask you for identification, must you provide him/her with I.D.? Know when to identify yourself. In most cases, when an American officer approaches you for a street check, if you are an American citizen, you do not have to show the police your I.D. or answer any questions. But expect a confrontation, a heated exchange and threats of an arrest or worse.
