KENNER POLICE MISCONDUCT ATTORNEY
Everyone considers themselves to be at the very least a good driver. And, for the most part, everyone considers the roads they travel on every day to be safe. Most of the time they are, but consider the following scenario that can happen any day.
Police Misconduct Attorney
Police misconduct includes any behavior that is improper, disgraceful or unbecoming of a police officer. It includes deliberately obtaining false confessions, false imprisonment, brutality, corruption, racial profiling, sexual abuse, intimidation, and surveillance abuse.
Every day, police officers work a difficult and thankless job. In fact, some of the responsibilities placed on them are hugely stressful. Society tends to confer immense power and responsibility on a police officer. Like prosecutors, police officers are given the task of making society safe. But there are times when this zeal leads them to cross the line. While a majority of the police officers are ethical, hard-working, and committed to serve communities, mistakes do happen leading to the abuse of their power.
When a police officer abuses power, it doesn’t just impact one citizen. It impacts the trust all of us place on law enforcement officers. Police misconduct attorneys in Kenner, LA at the Law Offices of L. Clayton Burgess have more than two decades of experience in handling complicated brutality cases.
