Unlawful Searches

The correct use of ‘stop and search powers’ by police officers is essential to the maintenance of public confidence. Police officers have powers to stop and search members of the public, but only in given circumstances and under strict conditions.

If you think you have been subjected to an unlawful stop and search then please contact the civil liberties team and one of the team members will be happy to discuss your concerns with you.
