False-Arrest

Law enforcement is a complex occupation. It requires police officers master concepts like Reasonable Suspicion and Probable Cause. Reasonable Suspicion is required to stop, detain, identify, and investigate someone for a suspected crime or traffic infraction. In addition, officers must develop Probable Cause to make an arrest. The fact is most police officers have never received adequate training and education in the definitions and applications of Reasonable Suspicion and Probable Cause. Furthermore, the vast majority of police officers hold no degrees in criminal justice, and have no formal education beyond a high school diploma or GED. Therefore it is not surprising many officers routinely engage in acts resulting in False Arrest. 

While most police officers are good, decent, and honorable men and women who have dedicated their lives to safeguarding our communities, some are not. Every law enforcement agency has marginal or rogue officers. These officers are not above the law and are accountable for their actions. Gilbertson Investigations is committed to pursuing this important work on behalf of victims of false arrest.
