These Actions Are Illegal
If you have been the victim of inappropriate or illegal behavior on the part of a police officer, you may be feeling angry, vulnerable or powerless to do anything about the situation. You are not alone – I am here to help. Police misconduct can take many forms:
- Unlawful search and seizure – If a police officer searches your home, vehicle, property or person without the proper information, evidence and legal documentation in place, then the action is considered an unlawful search. If the officer conducts a search and seizes property without following proper procedure, then it is considered an illegal search and seizure. Both actions may be a violation of your constitutional rights.
- Unnecessary use of force – If the situation does not warrant the level of force used by a police officer, then the officer has overstepped his or her boundaries.
- Sexual assault – Sexual assault is a crime, regardless of whether or not the perpetrator was wearing a badge. Being forced to perform sexual acts with another prisoner, being inappropriately touched and being forced to undress without a legitimate reason are all forms of sexual assault. You do not have to suffer alone.
- Withholding medical care – Police officers and jailers are required to provide care to individuals in need of medical attention. Withholding medical care is a form of abuse and an illegal activity.
