Law enforcement officers in United States can commit serious acts of misconduct. Law enforcement officers can include a police officer, deputy sheriff, or federal law enforcement agent.
When that misconduct involves a local, state or federal law enforcement officer engaging in the wanton use of excessive force or physical violence causing bodily injury to make an arrest, the conduct is often called police brutality.
Contact a civil rights attorney in United States to discuss your rights after a case of police brutality resulting in serious bodily injury or financial damages.
The NPAP is a project of the National Lawyers Guild to help attorneys devoted to ending police misconduct by assisting its members with training and support, educating the public, and coordinated legal action.
