psychology; Bivens

In this module, you are required to read the article on Bivens from Journal of Police and Criminal Psychology. The purpose of this article is to understand that a law enforcement officer is not immune from civil lawsuits.
Where once police and law enforcement agencies thought themselves immune, civil lawsuits against law enforcement officers are quite common nowadays. These lawsuits are based on whether the law enforcement officers correctly followed the guidelines meant to protect the citizens, guaranteed by the Constitution.
The purpose behind Bivens is to some extent protect private citizens from police misconduct. The other side of the coin is that if we so circumscribe the actions of officers, citizens may not be protected from the criminal acts of others. The point of the assignment is for you to begin to recognize this balancing act.
