I hadn't contemplated vicarious liability recently, but obviously some have. In a nutshell, after a crash involving an ATV and officers who had been drinking, the direct supervisor has been recommended for termination. Others up the level of major have been given demotions or days off. http://www.local10.com/news/29477630/detail.html http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/10/11/2449533/report-police-negligence-lies.html I realize that this isn't civil liability, but it certainly suggests there can be consequences for supervisors.
