Our police officers are supposed to be there to protect us and enforce the law. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Just as with every other group of people, sometimes there are officers who abuse their positions and take advantage of people. If this happens to you, there are certain civil rights that protect you from police misconduct and abuse.

If you believe your civil rights have been violated by the police, then you could have a lawsuit against the entity in charge of the offices. A lawyer can help you determine if your civil rights were violated, and if they were, help you to fight to make sure you are compensated for a violation of your civil rights.
