Are You a Victim of Police Brutality in Colorado?
Sometimes, the police who are supposed to protect us act outside of their authority and cause serious physical and psychological injuries. At The Viorst Law Offices, P.C., in Denver, attorney Anthony J. Viorst stands up to police officers who violate the public’s trust
Police misconduct occurs when law enforcement uses excessive force, makes improper or illegal arrests, or falsely imprisons a person. If this has happened to you, you have the right to make claims against the police under state and federal law.
Understanding Police Misconduct In Colorado
There are different types of police misconduct claims. Many of these claims are filed under Title 42, Section 1983 of the U.S. Code and include:
- Use of excessive force/police brutality — when police and other law enforcement agents respond to a situation using more physical force than necessary to control the situation
- False or unlawful arrest — when a police officer arrests someone without having “probable cause” that the person is committing or has committed a crime
- False imprisonment — when police or other law enforcement agents use unauthorized bodily restraint, not necessarily placing them in jail
