Police Federation Specialists

Our Police Federation professionals deal with Police Officers, PCSOs and Police Staff accused of criminal offences or disciplinary matters.

What Casework does the Police Federation Team handle?

Being on the wrong end of a complaint is an occupational hazard, but that does not make it any less stressful. Any investigation may lead to months of uncertainty, having your actions scrutinised by people with the benefit of hindsight, and decisions that take an unfathomable length of time. If this sounds familiar, we understand the impact being under investigation and facing legal proceedings can have.

If your actions are being looked at by the PSD or you are under investigation by the IOPC, we can provide expert legal and practical advice from day one. A decision of ‘no further action’ will be our aim, but if – either rightly or wrongly – you find yourself facing criminal or misconduct proceedings, we have the expertise to prepare your case. We guarantee a complete service and will utilise our links with experts and specialist barristers to fight your corner. Your case matters to us!

The clients we represent may be accused of a large range of Criminal offences and Disciplinary matters. The nature of the casework we handle is often time-sensitive and requires paramount discretion. We are there to provide expert support to clients who may be going through the worst period of their lives.

Our specialists can work on a range of casework, including – but not exclusive to – matters involving allegations of assault and using excessive force, misconduct in a public office, Data Protection offences, inappropriate relationships and motoring offences.

We advise Police Officers at all hours of the day or night, including at Post-Incident Procedures, where matters involve a death or serious injury.

Why choose Cartwright King’s Police Federation Lawyers?

Our specialists are alive to complex mental health issues, suffered by some Officers and Police Staff, including PTSD. We instruct highly respected medical experts who can provide crucial evidence in defence or mitigation.

Additionally, each Police Federation specialist has gathered knowledge of operational policing and the practical application of the Police Codes of Ethics and Conduct Regulations.

Our Police Federation specialists keep abreast of the political influences, which may affect the course of an investigation and decisions made.

When you need us most.
