Stephen Cragg QC and Sam Jacobs have brought together a distinguished team of contributors from Doughty Street Chambers and Bhatt Murphy who are at cutting edge of legal developments in the area ofpolice misconduct, appearing in many landmark higher court and European cases and regularly involved in civil compensation claims, judicial review challenges and appeals.
Police Misconduct is a comprehensive yet highly practical guide for practitioners and advisers covering the two major routes to remedying police misconduct: police complaints and civil actions in the courts. The new (2020) police complaints and disciplinary procedures are dealt with in depth in three new chapters. The book equips the reader with the essentials for advising on the full range of procedures, strategies and tactics available and provides thorough procedural advice and step-by-step guidance from pre-issue considerations through to jury trial and appeal.
There is detailed guidance on the most common torts – false imprisonment, assault and battery, malicious prosecution and misfeasance and clear analysis of developing causes of actions against the police such as negligence, privacy, discrimination and claims under the Human Rights Act 1998.
