What Is Police Misconduct?

In a legal sense, police misconduct is any action taken by a police officer or law enforcement agency that is illegal or inappropriate in nature. In many instances, this type of behavior can lead to physical injuries and emotional trauma.

What are Examples of Law Enforcement Misconduct?

When a police officer’s misconduct causes you physical or emotional harm, you may be able to take legal action. Some examples of police misconduct include:

  • Excessive use of force
  • Police brutality
  • Sexual assault
  • Fraud or coercion
  • Abuse of authority
  • Planting evidence
  • Unlawful detainment
  • Improper attack by police dog
  • Unsafe driving in a police car

Often, police misconduct leads to serious and sometimes life-altering injuries, such as broken bones, cuts and scarring, internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, brain injuries. Similarly, the emotional trauma of the incident can have life-long effects. When this is the case, you shouldn’t be left dealing with expensive medical bills, lost income, and other damages on your own.
