Actions Against PoliceMeet the team
It is absolutely possible to hold the police to account if any of their officers have behaved in a way that is unprofessional, unethical or illegal.
In fact, it’s highly recommended that anyone who has experienced discrimination, excessive force, wrongful arrest, illegal searches or any other transgression of this kind should make an official complaint, as every case serves as a push for the force to crack down on any negative behaviour and helps to keep your community safer.
