I have a question regarding the professional conduct of state police troopers towards arrestees. Does a person under arrest have the right to refuse a demand by a state trooper if that request is demeaning toward the arrestee? Specifically, can a state trooper demand an arrestee to comply with an order to stand inside a plastic garbage bag with holes for the feet and march said arrestee outside of the police barracks? Additionally, does a state police trooper have the right to intimidate an arrestee by throwing his clothing into a puddle of urine?
You should obey if possible and then file a complaint--those acts can be reason to dismiss him after and even for you to collect damages possibly--
The function was organized in collaboration with Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL) Section of Embassy of the United States with an aim to evolve new ideas to further improve professional conduct of police so that Motorway Police in the country could better serve the society and people.
