Police Misconduct | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Police Misconduct Lawyers

Police misconduct refers to illegal or inappropriate action taken by an officer. It can involve a violation of state law, federal law, or police department rules and regulations. Police misconduct occurs when police officers take improper action during their official duties. Such misconduct can not only deprive individuals of their freedom, but it also can result in permanent physical, mental, and emotional injury.

Common Types of Police Misconduct Include:

  • Police brutality
  • False or wrongful arrest
  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Excessive use of force
  • Malicious prosecution
  • Sexual misconduct

“To serve and protect,” this has now become a cliché, so much so that some police officers have lost the true meaning of what it means to serve and protect. While there are many faithful policemen and women executing their duties to protect and serve with good conscience and dignity, there is a minority who choose to behave like the very criminals they are supposed to be apprehending. If you pay close attention to the media, there is a rise in the number of police misconduct incidents.

Civil rights law and seeking compensation where you have been wronged by the government, is a legally complex and usually overwhelming thought. Indeed, standing up against a police officer, corrections officer or other government officials can be a scary and confusing proposition. At the Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm, we routinely represent people who have had the civil rights violated under both state law as well as the federal statute 42 USC § 1983. We have experience in standing up for ordinary people against the government. Fighting the government is what we do.
