The role of the police is to serve and protect. They are supposed to investigate crimes and take actions to prevent harm when possible. In addition to protecting the people of , the police are also charged with protecting the Constitution and the rights it guarantees to each American. Most officers take these responsibilities seriously, serving their community and risking their lives for the good of the public. Other officers don’t always act honorably. In the aftermath of police brutality or other unlawful police actions, there is a tendency for other officers and their superiors to band together to support their colleague. At McCall | Atten, International, we stand up to law enforcement officers, police departments and police organizations to protect your rights.
While the use of force is sometimes necessary to subdue a threat, some officers use excessive or unnecessary force when making an arrest. This occurs due to department policies, poor training or an officer’s individual choice. Officers sometimes shoot, tase or beat suspects who pose no threat or little threat. While most police take the rights of the public seriously, others ignore the procedural safeguards put in place by the courts and the Constitution. When police abuse their power, our attorneys represent the victims in civil rights actions and personal injury lawsuits.
Violence isn’t the only way police officers abuse their power. Some of the many types of rights violations by law enforcement officers include:
