Were You a Victim of Police Misconduct or Excessive Force?
Tell Our Philadelphia Police Brutality Attorneys What Happened Right Away
Although the main objective of Philadelphia Police is to protect and serve,
oftentimes citizens need protection from the Police themselves. Police
Misconduct has been a significant problem within the Philadelphia Police
Department for decades. Philadelphia Police Officers have committed crimes
ranging from providing false information in an effort to obtain a search
warrant, to excessive violence in the line of duty, to first-degree murder.

We Can Protect Your Rights
Krasner & Long are well-versed in cases involving civil rights claims,
especially when they are related to Police Misconduct. Recently, five
Philadelphia police officers and one Lieutenant were transferred after
Lawrence Krasner brought information to light that suggested that the
officers were collaborating with drug dealers within Philadelphia.
Mr. Krasner also brought forth information pointing to additional claims
of police brutality, fabricated evidence, and theft. Upon receiving this
information, the District Attorney of Philadelphia decided that the testimony
of these officers was not reliable, resulting in several criminal cases
being dismissed. Cases of misconduct such as these reaffirm the public's
need to regulate law enforcement.
Although at times it may appear so, police officers are not above the law.
They can be held accountable for their actions to the same degree that
every citizen can. In fact, this accountability for their actions is necessary
to maintain a fair and just police force.
If you believe you have a civil rights claim, do not hesitate to contact
Philadelphia criminal defense lawyers Krasner & Long immediately,
as there may be a variety of opportunities at your disposal.
