Police Misconduct

The most well-known example of police misconduct is police brutality, but this is only one way the public can be victimized by police. Police misconduct violates the oath of peace officers and their responsibilities as public servants. Victims of police misconduct can be wrongfully convicted of crimes, lose property and freedom, and face social stigmatization. Police misconduct also creates distrust between police and the public they are meant to protect.

Reporting police misconduct is a step toward ending this abuse of power. (In New York City visit www.nyc.gov/html/ccrb/home.html for complaint information). If you have been a victim of police misconduct, you have legal grounds to protest your mistreatment. An attorney familiar with laws governing police misconduct can review your case and help you decide how to proceed.
