Police

The police play an important role in keeping our society safe. They are granted special powers in order to protect us. The police are of course human and therefore prone to making mistakes like the rest of us. These mistakes can lead to people getting hurt and injured, or being wrongly arrested, when this happens the victim may be entitled to make a claim for compensation to help cover loss of income and suffering.
