The National Police Accountability Project (NPAP) is a non-profit membership organization of plaintiff's lawyers, law students and legal workers dedicated to ending police abuse of authority through coordinated legal action, public education, and support for grassroots and victims' organizations combating police misconduct. We are a project of the National Lawyers Guild.
Join NPAP today! Our members work on cutting edge police misconduct litigation. Our listserv is offered to all current members, and our CLE programs are offered to members at reduced rates. If you are a grassroots or victims' organization focused on police misconduct, please visit our resources and publications section to learn more.
NPAP and the Human Rights Defense Center are offering a two-day CLE seminar at the Marriott Hotel in West Palm Beach, Florida, with a full seminar day on Thursday, March 2 and a half day on Friday, March 3.
Have you or has someone you know been arrested at a political demonstration, or are you planning to be involved in a political action with a high risk of arrest? The National Lawyers Guild's Mass Defense Committee offers Legal Support Hotlines in a number of metropolitan areas: see the MDC's hotlines and know-your-rights booklets here.
Are you a victim of police misconduct? The NPAP Manual for Victims of Police Misconduct, written by Guido Moreira, may provide you with useful information: see the manual here.
