Police officers take an oath to protect and serve. They are expected to remain true to this oath throughout their careers and even place their lives on the line to protect the citizens in their jurisdictions.
Police misconduct encompasses illegal or unethical actions or the violation of individuals’ constitutional rights by police officers in the conduct of their duties. Examples of police misconduct include police brutality, dishonesty, fraud, coercion, torture to force confessions, abuse of authority, and sexual assault, including the demand for sexual favors in exchange for leniency.
But what happens when the police officers we trust to protect us are the cause of our injuries and damages?
