find case on officer being sued for misconduct?
There are a couple databases that would be good for you to perform your search. I would recommend using the databases:
- Criminal Justice Abstracts with Full Text
- Criminial Justice Periodicals
- ProQuest Central
For each of these databases, you will want to select the Advanced Search. You will then want to separate your search terms out onto the separate lines. Some search terms that might be useful for you would be:
misconduct AND dismissal
misconduct AND officer AND court
misconduct AND case stud*
misconduct AND court
Be sure you enter the terms exactly as they are listed above. The * will bring back both case study and case studies. Be sure you check off full text to bring back only results with the full text article attached. If you need peer reviewed or scholarly articles, you can also check off the peer review box.
Let us know if you have any additional questions!
