Tips to Avoid Force and Sex-Based Complaints

Allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct and excessive force have been the staple of sensational headlines and are made of the stuff that can be career ending even when proven untrue. While this article and writer absolutely condemn any kind of unethical or illegal sexually based conduct or excessive force by professional law enforcement personnel, some false claim situations do occur. Even more important, those false claims hurt the true victims whose claims are called into question....

    Article is right on target and the advice needs to be followed by every officer. Recording contacts has saved my butt on more than one occassion. Complaint comes, recording is revealed, then comes "Oh -- never mind then." I then follow that up with a set of cuffs for false reporting -- also recorded.

    Excellent article! One that every officer should read and follow, with a lot of sound advice! I just wished that many times I had carried one of those pocket recorders, as my departments did not offer dash cams, or anything of that nature. In one of the departments, our communications system was one step above two tin cans and a piece of string!

    I am a survivor of a sexual assault by a uniformed, ON DUTY police officer. He took the plea agreement . I died for nearly 4 years after and have JUST now gotten my life back. THE BEST WAY TO AVOID ANY OF THIS IS 100% PROPER,PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT AT ALL TIMES. WE ARE TAUGHT TO TRUST YOU-THE POLICE..i DID AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO ME. BE WORTHY OF THAT TRUST AND REMEBER VICTIM/SURVIVORS LIKE ME. CHECK WHAT'S INSIDE YOUR HEART-THAT'S WHERE IT ALL STARTS AND ENDS.

    Well written. I cannot stress enough about carrying a pocket recorder. I never had the luxury of a dash cam recorder. I had two ladies (I use this term loosly) accuse me of sexual misconduct. The husband of one of the complainants was present and I continued to engage him in conversation as I suspected some problems. Once the complaint was filed I informed one of the complainants the entire incident was recorded. She shit little green apples. One moved and the other would not leave her house when I was on duty. The 15 minute recording cleard me.
