Most police officers are honorable. Tragically, there are some bad cops among them who must be held accountable when they use reprehensible, unlawful, unreasonable and too often deadly force against our citizens. Thank God the police departments are using body cams and video cameras in their cars in an attempt to root out the bad behavior of some officers. At Cullan & Cullan, we believe in justice.

Filing a Civil Lawsuit for Police Misconduct
Law enforcement personnel play an important role in enforcing laws and keeping people safe from crime. However, they must abide by specific procedures and must observe our rights as set forth by the U.S. Constitution. They carry a great responsibility as they carry out their duties. They cannot act with prejudice or reckless abandon in their efforts to prevent crime, make arrests, or interrogate suspects.
Depending on the case, police misconduct can be criminally prosecuted, but this does not always occur and victims may not always see justice through criminal proceedings. Our Kansas City police misconduct lawyers can take legal action in civil court to hold at-fault officers accountable for their wrongdoing. We can pursue financial compensation for your medical care and any other losses or injuries you have experienced.
