What is Police Misconduct?
Police misconduct is a blanket term that includes every instance when a police officer gives in to corruption or indulges in abuse. In short, it refers to when the police harm the very citizens they swore to protect. The expectation for police officers is that they will only use the force that is necessary to subdue a suspect.
You may have been a victim of excessive force if you were subjected to:
- Gang tackle
- Improper use of taser, baton, police dogs, or pepper spray
- Unreasonable shooting
- Excessive restraint methods
- Sexual assault, including strip searches
However, police misconduct is not only physical. You may also be entitled to compensation if you were a victim of:
- Threats or intimidation
- Planting or fabrication of evidence
- A coerced confession
Protecting Your Constitutional Rights with Tenacity
It is an unfortunate truth that police officers can abuse their power. Whether the misconduct is due to poor training, bad judgment, or discrimination, your constitutional rights have likely been violated. You may be entitled to monetary damages to compensate for the pain and suffering you endured. The United States of America has laws in place to protect the fundamental rights of every citizen.
If yours were violated, it is necessary to take action. Discuss your case with our Palm Springs police misconduct attorney by calling us at (760) 537-4457 today.
