Intimidating police officer
There might be an official form that you’re required to use.
If so, simply transfer the information you wrote down in Step 1 onto the correct form.
(Of course, if you weren’t charged with a crime and you’re not suing, file the complaint right away.) The materials you prepared in Step 1 will form the body of your complaint.
You’ll be glad you wrote everything down before, because you might not want to file your complaint until weeks or months later.
This might also help jog your memory about other important details. Tip: It’s okay if you didn’t get the badge or car number.
Avoid attorneys who work in many different areas of the law.
(Click here for a list of attorneys who specialize in handling cases of police misconduct.) Police misconduct cases are challenging, and lawyers meet a lot of difficult people.
If this is required, avoid discussing the nature of your complaint with any police officers.
Police might try to intimidate you by claiming that your particular complaint has no merit.
