The police have a special role in society to enforce the law and protect us, but they are not above the law. In certain instances they can overstep their boundaries and legal powers, causing personal injury to a member of the public.
Instances when this might happen include:
I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and can’t thank you enough for all the hard work that you put in. Everything went so smoothly and all I had to do was sign some papers and everything was taken care of. Anytime I had any concerns I knew I could call and my mind was always put at rest. You can never know how much this means to me and I am so grateful. If anything ever happened to me again then I would come straight to you.
