Stop & Search - How to Complain

If you are not satisfied with how you have been treated

Officers Talking in Street PublicWe expect officers to be polite and respectful at all times and all stops and searches must be carried out with courtesy, consideration and respect. stop and search powers must only be used fairly, responsibly and without discrimination.

If you were unhappy with how you were treated, you can complain. You can also make a complaint if you feel you were treated differently because of your race, age, sexuality, gender, disability, religion or faith.

We value feedback - both positive and negative - as this helps us to identify the things we do well and any areas that we may need to improve. Visit Contact Us to make a complaint or commendation.

Alternatively, if you have any other feedback you would like to give us about a stop and search please use the Stop and Search Feedback form.
