Types Of Misconduct

Police misconduct claims come in various forms. At Seatons, we offer friendly, comprehensive legal advice and professional assistance on a variety of matters to those who believe they have been;

  • Falsely imprisoned
  • Wrongly arrested
  • Assaulted by the police
  • Kept in custody without good reason or for longer than necessary
  • A victim of discrimination relating to disability or ethnic origin

Why Use Seatons?

The police are seen as custodians to the rule of law. It is therefore particularly distressing to have ever been a victim of police misconduct. Whether the police have acted negligently or you have been subject to false imprisonment or wrongful arrest, Seatons can advise on the best course of action to take.

Our specialist solicitors have a wealth of experience dealing with police misconduct and provide supportive, dynamic legal representation tailored to your needs.  We deal with police complaints, appeals to the Independent Police Complaints Commission and civil litigation for compensation.
