Types of Police Misconduct

Police misconduct comes in many forms, all of which can have a deep, lasting impact on the victim and his or her future.

Examples of police misconduct include:

  • False arrest
  • Illegal search and seizure
  • Racial profiling
  • Illegal strip search
  • Police cover-up

When handling cases involving any of these types of misconduct, our team carefully analyzes the details of the incident and takes the time to thoroughly investigate it. By gathering testimonies from witnesses, other officers, and experts in the field, we can build a strong case that presents your story accurately and favorably.

False Arrest

In order to make an arrest, a police officer must have probable cause. In other words, they must have a valid reason to believe that you have committed a crime. If you were arrested without probable cause, your civil rights were violated. In these situations, our Philadelphia police misconduct attorneys can help you seek justice by holding the officer accountable.

Illegal Search & Seizure

The Fourth Amendment protects you from unreasonable searches and seizures. A police officer may not search your home, your car, your person, or any of your property without probable cause that you committed a crime. If you were charged with a crime based on evidence obtained in an illegal search and seizure, you have grounds for a lawsuit.

Mincey Fitzpatrick Ross is here to protect your rights and ensure that the evidence obtained in the search cannot be used against you. With 100 years of combined experience, we have helped thousands of Philadelphians fight back against police misconduct.

With offices in Philadelphia and Erie, we are here for you in your time of need. Contact us at (215) 550-1999 to request a free consultation.
