That being said, law enforcement is trusted with an incredible measure of power in our communities. From time to time, an officer may engage in a behavior that abuses the power. By doing so, it simultaneously damages the lives of citizens, the reputation of police departments, and the fragile trust that both citizens and police rely on to effectively maintain public safety.
Legal action is important in obtaining compensation for victims and their families as well as preventing future incidents of unwarranted police violence. Knowing how liability is seen in the eyes of the law can be complex and difficult to determine. But this determination is key in understanding whether someone has a case.
