Fighting Back Against Police Misconduct

We rely on those sworn to protect and serve for safety and assistance. We count on them when we're most vulnerable, and trust they are on our side.

When that trust is broken, it can hurt deeply. At The Pagan Law Firm, P.C., we strive to help those who have been wronged by New York police find justice.

Helping Your Voice Be Heard

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. Some of those misconducts include:

  • Wrongfully seized property
  • False or wrongful convictions
  • Unecessary or added charges
  • Withholding of prisoner or arrestee rights
  • Profiling
  • Wrongful stops or searches

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. New York City residents can go here to find out more 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.
