Can police be sued for negligence?

The police can be sued for negligence. I have sued police officers for negligence in car crash cases. When that happens the city hires a lawyer to defend the individual police officer. When damages are paid or awarded the city or their insurance company puts up the money. My office in Jefferson County Kentucky handles negligence cases all over the Commonwealth. I am a personal injury lawyer which means that negligence cases are 95% of my practice.
