Raleigh Police Misconduct Attorneys

Helping Victims of Police Brutality, Wrongful Arrest & More

Today, police misconduct has become increasingly common throughout the country, but it remains unlawful. Edwards Kirby aggressively holds the government accountable when it oversteps its authority, abuses its power, and injures the very citizens it is charged with protecting.

Police brutality, wrongful arrest, and racial profiling are all forms of police misconduct. In many cases, victims of these violations can recover compensation and send a message that police misconduct is not acceptable. At Edwards Kirby, our qualified and experienced Raleigh police brutality lawyers can help you stand up to the police and other governmental entities who abuse their power and violate your civil rights. We can help you get the justice you deserve.

Contact our firm at (919) 335-7005 to discuss your options with a knowledgeable attorney.

Types of Police Misconduct & Your Rights

Police misconduct can take on many forms. It occurs when a law enforcement officer abuses their power, mistreats an arrestee, suspect, or other person, or otherwise violates the law or standard protocol related to their duties. While most law enforcement personnel are good people trying to make a difference by enforcing the law, some have ulterior motives or are fueled by prejudice. Police misconduct violates our basic civil rights and should be exposed.

The following are examples of police misconduct:

  • Police brutality
  • Excessive use of force
  • Excessive use of Taser guns or stun guns
  • Wrongful detainment
  • Wrongful arrest or imprisonment
  • Sexual assault
  • Racial profiling
  • Planting evidence
  • Mistreatment of a person in police custody
  • Forcing, threatening, or coercing a confession
  • Physical assault and torture

Our Raleigh police misconduct attorneys believe such acts should not be tolerated. We stand up for our clients’ civil rights by exposing police brutality and other wrongdoing.
