Civil Rights Violations and Police MisconductCivil Rights Violations and Police Misconduct

The United States Constitution prohibits police officers from using unreasonable or excessive force against individuals. Law enforcement officers in Illinois use many different types of force in the performance of their duties, including, handcuffs, Tasers, pepper spray, batons, and firearms. However, previous civil rights cases from Illinois and all over the country have determined that police officers may only use the type and amount of force that is reasonable based on the circumstances known to them at the time of the incident.

In Illinois, the State and United States Constitution prohibits the use of force that is excessive or unreasonable under the circumstances. In general, police officers in Illinois can only use deadly force if they have probable cause to believe that the suspect poses an immediate threat of death or serious bodily injury to the officers or others. The Illinois civil rights attorney at the Giacoletto Law Firm will defend an individual against these types of civil rights violations.
