A law firm dedicated to fighting for your rights
Police officers are given great power and authority to assist them in upholding the law and protecting ordinary citizens from the criminal element of society. Most police officers are committed and ethical in performing their service to society. Unfortunately, that power is abused all too often. Anyone who watches the news knows that not every police officer acts in accordance with the oath that he or she took to uphold the law, nor do they abide by the protocols instituted to guide them. Many times we need to be protected from the illegal actions of the police. In the United States we are blessed with a system of justice that holds the corrupt police officer accountable for his or her actions.
When the trust that we bestow in these officers is betrayed, it should not go ignored. The consequences of police brutality effects every citizen.
