Police Misconduct can occur when a police officer unlawfully stops, arrests, or seizes another. A False Arrest or False Imprisonment is the unlawful detention of another person into custody. When determining whether an individual has been unlawfully detained, the courts ultimately decide whether the arresting officer(s) had reasonable cause to make the detention. A person who has been falsely arrested or imprisoned is entitled to recover damages for the wrongful actions by a law enforcement officer. He or she may also be entitled to recover from the employer of the officer, such as the police department of that officer for the failure to properly train that officer or for their unlawful policies and practices.
