Can the police handcuff you without reading you your rights?

More often than not, you will be read your rights when you are handcuffed. This is because you will be informed at this point in time that you’re under arrest. The police have to read you your Miranda rights when you are being interrogated or being arrested for a crime. It’s your right to hear this statement and most officers will make it before arresting you so that anything you say after that point could be used against you in a criminal trial.
