Police Brutality & Misconduct in Washington DC
Holding Law Enforcement Officials Accountable
Law enforcement officials are tasked with the responsibility of not only protecting the general public, but doing so in a manner that is legal and as safe as possible. While the vast majority do their job properly, there are still numerous instances of police officers going too far and causing serious injury or even death to individuals. When these public servants abuse the trust and confidence that we place in them, take advantage of the power that they are given, violate other’s civil rights, and cause injury, we believe that they should be held fully responsible for their actions.

- False arrest

- Abuse of power

What Should I Do if I Faced Police Misconduct?
Because of the power that police officers hold and the serious injury that their misconduct can create, dealing with an instance of excessive force or misconduct can be an extremely difficult task.
Your first priority should always be protecting yourself, and it is essential to comply with the officer’s requests as best as possible and be non-aggressive. While this may not always work, it can significantly reduce your risk of injury or death. Once the incident is over, it is important to seek immediate medical attention if necessary and contact an experienced and knowledgeable civil rights attorney right away.
