Making a complaint about stop and search

Making a complaint about stop and search

During a stop and search the officer should treat you fairly and with respect.  If you are unhappy with how you were treated, you can complain.  You can also complain if you feel you were treated differently because of your ethnic background, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or a disability.  It will help if you keep the receipt the police gave you.
