Failure to Intervene: A Civil Rights Violation
Though police officers are sworn to protect citizens while preserving their civil rights, unfortunately, that is not always the case. If an officer observes another police officer partaking in police misconduct and does not intervene, that officer may be legally responsible for the wrongdoing. It is a police officer’s oath and duty to mediate a situation if they see another officer violating a citizen’s civil rights.

If an officer failed to intervene in a situation you were involved with, there may be a basis for legal action. The knowledgeable, seasoned civil rights attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin examine all the evidence in order to verify if you have reason to sue for a police misconduct case.
