The effective running of a police service relies on respect and trust from the public in which it serves. The reputation of a police force as a whole is an accumulation of each individual police officer’s standing in the public domain. It takes time and effort to build up a strong, reliable reputation but this can be ruined in just a short space of time by one individual and a few choice words.

At Gorvins we can help officers who have had their reputation unfairly tarnished through defamation, which is when a person writes, broadcasts or publishes on the internet something negative and false that relates directly back to you, damaging your reputation or your business. This is not only upsetting but can be exceedingly harmful to you as a police officer or member of the police federation.

Your right to privacy is extremely important; it’s not ok for someone to make an incorrect disclosure in regards to your personal information. This is where our talented and specialist team can advise you on the options and what we recommend as the best way forward to deal with the issue. From there we work closely together putting your wishes first to bring the case to a conclusion. Every police officer deals with defamation differently and it’s for this reason we ensure that we tailor our response specifically to you.

We know that you may have lots of questions, and we have the answers. How much does it cost? Do I have a valid case? How long will it take? What are my chances of success? During our initial consultation, we will discuss your specific situation and provide you with clear and transparent information about our fees, the strength of your case, the estimated timeline, and your chances of success.

We’ll take the time to listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have, so you can feel confident and empowered throughout the legal process.

If successful in any claim, you could be awarded compensation, an injunction to prevent future defamatory publications referring to you, and your opponent could even be ordered to pay your costs.

If you would like to discuss any issues you are experiencing, contact our defamation solicitors for a consultation at 0161 930 5151, e-mail or fill in the contact form and a member of the team will contact you.
