Should Police Testimony Count More Than Other Testimony?

Absolutely not. “[A] police officer’s testimony is to be evaluated in the same manner as that of any other witness and there is no presumption that such testimony is more credible than that of any other witness.” People v. Ford, 113 Ill.App.3d 659 (3d Dist. 1983).
