Stop and Search

You should not be stopped on the basis of your:
•    gender
•    gender identity
•    race
•    sexual orientation
•    disability
•    religion
•    the way you dress
•    or because you have committed a crime in the past.

After stopping you, the police officer must provide you with written reasons for the stop, whether any items were found on you, and must provide their name. If you feel you have been stopped and searched unfairly then we can help you find out more about why you were stopped, and advise you about your options, including making a complaint.
