Police officers generally have broad freedom and abilities in order to undertake their responsibilities. The Constitution and other laws, however, place limits on what lengths police are able to go to when trying to enforce jurisprudence. Law enforcement officers sometimes go too far, thereby transgressing upon the liberties of citizens. As a result, the affected individuals may have recourse through federal and state laws. A principal purpose of the nation’s civil rights laws is to maintain the protection of its citizens from misuse of power by their government employees, such as law enforcement misconduct. Civil rights laws may allow for attorney expenses and compensatory and punitory damages as benefits of these laws.
Our lawyers are keenly aware of the legal boundaries set for law enforcement. We take our role seriously in keeping law enforcement honest and accountable for the way they investigate crimes and treat citizens.
