New York Police Misconduct Lawyer

New York Discrimination Lawyer -Police misconduct refers to brutality, corruption or other objectionable actions taken by police officers in connection with their official duties.

Police corruption is a specific form of police misconduct sometimes involving political corruption, and generally designed to gain a financial or political benefit for a police officer or officers in exchange for not pursuing, or selectively pursuing, an investigation or arrest.

An example is police officers accepting bribes in exchange for not reporting organized drug or prostitution rings or other illegal activities.

Police corruption can involve a single officer or group of officers, or can be the standard practice of entire police precincts or departments. In most major cities there are internal affairs sections to investigate suspected police corruption or misconduct. However, sometimes the corruption is so widespread that investigation requires an external body with far reaching powers, such as a Royal Commission.
