You can sue the police under certain circumstances and this happens more than you would imagine..
Unfortunately some police officers break boundaries when they are given power and authority.
Some reasons for sueing the police:
- Assault and battery by a police officer,
- Wrongful arrest,
- unlawful detention,
- Malicious prosecution,
- Personal Injury, i.e. harm from a police officers dog,
- Wrongful removal/unreturned possessions
Most solicitor firms offer a ‘no win no fee’ basis, and depending on your circumstances – you may be entitled to legal aid.
