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
While police brutality is the most well-known example of police misconduct, that is not the only way the public can be mistreated. When police misconduct occurs, that officer or officers are violating their duties as public servants and their sworn oath as peace officers. Some of those misconducts include:
- Wrongfully seized property
- False or wrongful convictions
- Unnecessary or added charges
- Withholding of prisoner or arrestee rights
- Wrongful stops or searches
When these acts occur, distrust grows between police and those 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. You have legal grounds to protest your mistreatment if you have experienced police misconduct.
