Police brutality is the use of force by the police on a civilian beyond what is necessary in inquire information from a civilian or to achieve a police purpose in the process (Banks, 2012). This is considered a violation of the person’s rights since it is beyond the force that a police officer should use under those circumstances on a civilian.

Civilian reviews have also been used in where the citizens are given a chance to review the police department and give recommendations. Civil lawsuits can also act to curb the vice. These measures can help reduce the vice in various police departments (Banks, 2012).
