People in L.A. have widely differing feelings about law enforcement. It can range from unwavering support to deep mistrust. These feelings usually boil down to the interactions a person has with individual law enforcement officers.
It is important to remember that the vast majority of police officers behave responsibly and uphold their mandate To Protect and Serve. We can also recognize the improvements that have been made over the past two decades in the level of safety we experience here in Los Angeles.
There has been a significant change in policing since the riots following the Rodney King verdict in 1992 and the Rampart scandal later that decade. Much of this can be attributed to hard-working officers in the L.A.P.D. and leadership by Chiefs of Police William J. Bratton and Charlie Beck.

That being said, law enforcement is trusted with an incredible measure of power in our communities. From time to time, an officer engages in behavior that is an abuse of power. This simultaneously damages the lives of citizens, the reputation of police departments, and the fragile trust that both citizens and police rely on to effectively maintain public safety.
Normally infractions are small and the blame not so simple. But there are also cases of police brutality or excessive force in which the citizen has clearly been a victim of police misconduct. Assault by a law enforcement officer can lead to severe injury or even death.
Legal action is important in obtaining compensation for victims and their families as well as preventing future incidents of unwarranted police violence. Knowing how liability is seen in the eyes of the law can be complex and difficult to determine. But this determination is key in understanding whether someone has a case.
