The police are responsible for maintaining law and order in society, and their behavior towards the public is of crucial importance in building public trust in the government institutions and cooperation with them.

However, in many cases the police conduct themselves in an inadequate manner in handling complaints for criminal offenses.

This is due to a lack of synchronization and organization within the system, which leads to disorder, inefficiency and extremely slow treatment.

Problematic handling of complaints about crimes committed by police officers

In recent years, public criticism of the police has arisen due to deficiencies in its handling of crimes committed by police officers against citizens, such as police violence, false arrests and inappropriate behavior.

The conduct of the police is particularly worrisome, because it may undermine the very principles of justice and the rule of law.

Poor treatment of complainants suffering from disabilities

People with physical or mental disabilities often turn to criminal lawyers due to poor handling of their complaints by the police, after falling victim to fraud.

Unfortunately, the Israel Police avoids transferring serious fraud cases to the fraud department.

As a result of this conduct, the complainants who fell victim to fraud due to the fact that they suffer from a disability, do not receive an adequate response to their complaints.

Not this one either, sometimes their cases are even closed, which causes serious financial consequences and even bankruptcy.

In most cases, the complaints of those with disabilities receive an adequate response only after they turn to the services of a criminal lawyer, which may even lead to the re-opening of their case by the police.

Discrimination against members of minorities

In the complex Israeli reality, the conduct of the police towards the Arab population is considered a delicate issue, which requires sensitivity and appropriate training in order to prevent discrimination, while maintaining the safety of the citizens.

Unfortunately, in recent years there has been an increase in the number of reports of police violence against members of minorities.

It should be emphasized that these are not offenses against state security.

Most often, this attitude stems from prejudices that lead to the fact that the police have difficulty distinguishing between law-abiding citizens and criminals.

This can lead to mistrust and non-cooperation between minority communities and the police, which can have detrimental effects on public safety.

For example, last November, two residents of the Bedouin village of Bir HaDaj in the Northern Negev filed a complaint with the National Police, according to which eight uniformed men behaved violently towards them, vandalized their property and even put one of them in the trunk for about 40 minutes, after holding them back while driving a car near the village. The police claimed that the residents were suspected of drug trafficking, a claim that had no basis and was apparently intended to cover up a mistake in identification. Attorney Sapir

Shoshan, who represents the two, said that "it is not clear what the nature of the activity that led to this serious incident is. It is not possible To carry out operational actions without any basis by such wild, violent and shameful behavior. In addition to the violation of human dignity, the military personnel also damaged my client's property. It cannot be that Moked 100 ignores a call and no one came to check and scan the area."

Contact a criminal lawyer

If you feel that you have fallen victim to problematic conduct by the police, contacting a criminal lawyer is essential.

The lawyer will help you make sure your voice is heard and help you understand your rights and the legal tools available to you.

In addition, the lawyer will assist you in gathering evidence, building the case and managing the relevant police procedures.

Therefore, contacting a lawyer is an important step in holding the police accountable for their actions and ensuring that justice is done.

In conclusion, the police conducts itself in an inadequate manner in handling complaints for criminal offenses.

The conduct of the police stems from a lack of synchronization and organization within the system, which leads to disorder and inefficiency.

Apart from that, there is criticism against the police investigation department for insufficient investigation of crimes committed by police officers, inadequate dealing with crimes committed against people with mental disabilities and discrimination against minority citizens.

If you are a victim of such conduct, it is important to contact a criminal lawyer who will make sure that your voice is heard.

One of the key players in the field is Attorney Sapir Shoshan, who is not afraid to express criticism against law enforcement authorities. Attorney Shoshan's office provides a wide range of services that includes legal representation, advice and guidance throughout the entire process, personal attention and maximum availability.
