Counsel from a Trusted Riverside Civil Rights Attorney
By necessity, police officers often have to engage in violence. Not only
are they given weapons and devices to engage dangerous suspects, but all
receive extensive training on how to best physically ward off and subdue
civilian assailants. All of this is necessary for when a criminal poses
a physical threat to others, but has also given many officers the opportunity
to intentionally and unnecessarily hurt others. When this occurs, it is
considered police brutality-- and it is unacceptable.
At Grech & Packer, our firm is led by a former prosecutor and officer
of the court. Attorney Grech is well-versed in what is and what is not
acceptable when it comes to law enforcement conduct and who to hold responsible
when officers fail their duty to protect us as citizens. Contact our firm
today to get a dedicated and knowledgeable Riverside civil rights attorney
on your side who is ready to start pursuing justice on your behalf.

When does police brutality occur?
Unlike other examples of misconduct that can result from a misjudgment
from police officers, like excessive force or police shooting, a brutality
claim supposes that law enforcement intentionally meant to harm a citizen
when it was not called for. This has been known to occur any number of ways.
Police brutality can occur:
- In an interrogation room
- When a suspect is restrained
- When a suspect is cornered by multiple officers
- When an officer felt threatened and wants to retaliate
- After a resisting citizen has already been subdued/restrained
- When an officer uses weapons (baton, pepper spray, etc.) when it isn't
These are just some of countless circumstances when police brutality can
occur. Police beatings have become the most recognized form of police
brutality, but this kind of misconduct can occur throughout any stage
of the policing, arrest, and booking process.
If you believe that you have been intentionally and unnecessarily hurt
by police, then our firm is ready to hear your story.
