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.
