Police Misconduct

New York Based, Nationally Known, Police Misconduct Law Firm

Police officers and prison guards are employed to uphold the law and protect us from harm, but not all do their jobs as they are supposed to. Some engage in abuses of their authority and violate the public trust which has been placed in them. The need to monitor and check these abuses is ever present from unreasonable and excessive force to false arrest and malicious prosecution and unreasonable and excessive force. The Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington is equipped to address these concerns. The police have no right to use their position to violate the rights of members of the community, and certainly not to administer physical punishment. We expect those in uniform, who are given the duty to protect and serve our citizens, to act with respect and fairness. The law protects all people, including people accused or convicted of crimes, from violence and abuse at the hands of the police.

To the attorneys at the Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington, a police misconduct complaint involving the use of excessive force is serious and any such actions by police are unforgivable. The fact that the same people we trust to guarantee the safety and security of the public, can also abuse that trust by causing physical harm to the members of that public, is appalling.

By law, a police officer may use only as much physical force as is needed to control a situation. Whether your mistreatment was at the hands of the police, transit police, housing authority police, or a private security guard, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington will act quickly to ensure your legal rights are protected.
