All too easily you can find yourself facing the ultimate challenge to the job you love – the threat of legal action against you or your department.
Faced with such a threat it’s important to act fast and remember some key points:
- Get an attorney involved early on. Lawyers can help put out those small legal “fires” before they have a chance to spread.
- Have your attorney contact PoliceOne’s Legal Consultation Service for court-tested, professional guidance.
- We can offer a behind-the-scenes critique of the strengths and weaknesses or your case and testify on your behalf when appropriate.
- Print this page and give it to your legal representation to put on file so you’re prepared for any legal challenge you might face.
- Always remember, PoliceOne is here to help! Our extensive network of law enforcement tactical experts has been helping officers face – and win – legal challenges for years.
