Police Misconduct

Advocating For Your Civil Rights

POLICE MISCONDUCT AND POLICE BRUTALITY

When you are involved in any type of police activity, including a stop, search, detainment, investigation, interrogation or any part of the prosecution process, you have the right to be treated fairly. This involves the law enforcement officials following the correct procedures so as not to violate your civil rights, including treating you with dignity. Unfortunately, sometimes law enforcement officers abuse their positions and engage in policy misconduct or police brutality. If you feel your rights or those of a loved one have been violated at the hands of a police officer, contact a Los Angeles civil rights attorney right away. This type of conduct is unacceptable and illegal, and it is vital that you have an aggressive lawyer fighting to uphold your Constitutional rights. Some ways in which these may be abused are by police or law enforcement officials:

  • Using excessive force
  • Using deadly force to apprehend a suspect
  • Conducting a search without a warrant
  • Making an arrest without a warrant or probable cause
  • Committing false arrest
  • Falsely imprisoning or illegally detaining a suspect
  • Failing to release a pretrial detainee timely
  • Committing custodial negligence
  • Maliciously prosecuting
  • Denying an inmate certain privileges such as visitation, access to legal materials or mail, or practice of religion
  • Failing to prevent assault by fellow inmates
  • Allowing inmate assault by guards
