Protective Order

When an officer is the subject of a protective order, it means that a court has issued a legal order to protect an individual from being physically or emotionally harmed by the officer. This type of police misconduct can indicate a pattern of abusive behavior and can compromise the officer's ability to serve and protect the community. In such cases, the officer may face disciplinary action and may be removed from active duty until the protective order is lifted or the underlying issues are addressed.
