Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
What are you seeking to sue for, since under FL law the police department and officers are protected by statutory immunity from civil suit with very narrow exception?
Have you sought out an attorney, since FL courts are very much against pro se litigants?
