Police misconduct is a term used to describe unlawful behavior by law enforcement officers. When a law enforcement officer engages in an abuse of power and you are harmed as a result, your civil rights may have been violated. If you have experienced unfair or discriminatory treatment by a law enforcement officer, you may be able to bring a police misconduct lawsuit.
