Challenging the Police

Police Public Complaint Rights Legal

Challenging the police if you feel they have not properly carried out their duties is a legal right for people living in Britain.

There are a number of different ways that complaints can be made if you feel the police have been acting irresponsibly within their duties.

Police Misconduct

There are a number of reasons why the public may want to make a complaint regarding police behaviour.

Reasons can include:

  • Abuse of rights
  • Harassment and use of excessive force
  • A member of the public has been arrested unlawfully
  • A member of the public has been a witness to police misconduct
  • The police are treating certain groups in the community unfairly
  • Allegations of corruption, hate crimes, assault and injury
  • Death or serious injury while in custody

Where to Make a Complaint

Complaints can be submitted verbally or in writing at any local police station. If you are making a complaint in writing always make sure you obtain a copy of the complaint for yourself. You can also make a complaint about the police to an independent agency such as the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB). Information that is given must be accurate and honest and contain as many details as possible. Remember, the police can take legal action against anyone who makes a false complaint against the police force.

The IPCC

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is an organisation designed specifically to deal with complaints made against the police. If a complaint is made directly to the IPCC they will then forward it to the appropriate police force. The IPCC is a regulatory body that sets the standard regarding how police complaints procedures are handled. This organisation will handle complaints dealing with the behaviour of police officers and police staff. You can also use the IPCC’s online complaint form to send your complaint directly to the IPCC.

Police Complaints Procedure

Complaints about inappropriate behaviour of police officers and staff must be reported within 12 months of the incident taking place. Details should be as accurate as possible and include the time and date of the incident, the people involved and the police identity numbers if possible. Also try to include the names of any witnesses to the incident and anything that may support your claim such as CCTV cameras in the area. Witness statements will also be helpful but should be set out only by the witnesses.

Investigating the Complaint

The complaint will be investigated by a complaints and discipline department within the police force. Most complaints will be dealt with through the local police force but there are exceptions. Very serious complaints such as assault, corruption and discriminatory behaviour may be passed on to the IPCC. The IPCC may then conduct a supervised investigation. The IPCC can conduct supervised, managed and independent investigations depending on the seriousness of the allegation.

Why You Should Complain?

Many people who feel they do have a justifiable complaint against the police will simply forget the matter due to fear of consequences. However, the police do take complaints against police officers very seriously and allegations should always be thoroughly investigated. By making a complaint you are taking a stand that this sort of behaviour will not be tolerated within your own community. Complaints should also always be made if you are a witness to any type of police misconduct.

The Complaint Outcome

There are a number of different scenarios that may be the result of an allegation made against the police. As a result of a complaint the police may have to improve or change their procedures. If the complaint is of a particularly serious nature it may end up being taken to the criminal courts. The police may also end up taking misformal conduct action against the individual officer or officers that the complaint was made against.

Making an Appeal

If you feel that the complaint was not appropriately handled or you are unhappy about the outcome then you may be able to complain to the IPCC. The IPCC will look at the appeal and make a decision as to whether or not to investigate the matter further. The IPCC can also make the police change their decision or investigate the allegation further.

Members of the public should never be afraid of making a complaint against the police. Making a complaint is the only way to ensure that police misconduct is not tolerated within the community.

Cassie- Your Question:
Hi my car was write off while being parked. There was a witness who saw everything. I reported it to the police and they lost the form so I submitted it again. I've had a letter from the police saying my witness did not co-operate. My witress sent the form back to the police recorded delivery and kept the receipt which shows it was signed for. Police are now saying I ran out of time. everything was sent in plenty of time.I'm fuming. I've made a complaint but heard nothing

Our Response:
Who did you complain to? Try letting the IPCC know about this. The best thing to do would be to tell your insurer, give them the police incident number and let them sort it out.

Hi I will keep this short as I can need some advice I was on my motorcycle yesterday evning when a police car going in the opposite direction spun around followed me to my address and as I was going thew my gate in my back garden the officer jumped on my back and tried pulling me off my motorcycle only stopping ones my fiance come outside with my 9 moth old girl in her arms then his attitude changed abit I told him to get off my property as he was being very aggressive and obviously me not being very happy I didn't wish to speak to him he wouldn't leave so I ushered my fiance indoors and tried closing my back door but couldn't because the officer stuck his foot in my door he said his resons for doing it was first because my rear light wasn't working then it changes to speeding then he changed it to going over a mini roundabout then assault. They did not make any attempts to pull me over what I would of done if they did as my bike is mine and all up to scratch I feel as if I should complain I do have video evidence of this from he had his foot in my door as I felt very threatened at that point. Any advice would be very much appreciated

Our Response:
If you feel you were unfairly treated and have evidence to back this up, it might be worth lodging a complaint.

The IPCC is not fit for purpose. When you contact them you are gaslighted and lied to by the form filler they employ to shut you up and scupper the investigation that never takes place. The investigation that they do not bother to investigate (they are too lazy, bad tempered and narcissistic to care) because you dared to complain about them – they make you suffer. This is what I have endured with the waste of space South Norfolk Police. JW is the so-called Police Commander for South Norfolk. She is a bully and a gas-lighter, was dishonest and cruel to me for questioning incompetence. My cat was stolen on 24th May 2016 by a mentally deranged old woman. She gets kicks out of stealing cats and making the owners suffer and she gets a high from not allowing the cat to leave once they are in her stinking, filthy, dilapidated home. She is the person who I suspected had stolen her as she admitted to having my cat when I questioned her. The police dragged their feet and were very rude and failed to do anything about this woman and she still continues to steal cats and get away with it. My neighbours animal was stolen but managed to escape after 4 months in 2015. Cats Protection say that she is known to feed cats. There is no need for her to do this as all the cats in Mill Lane, Thetford have owners and are not STRAYS. She uses food and milk to lure them in and then they cannot go home – because the animal abuser and psycho does not allow them to. I reported the incompetent police to the IPCC. I have been emotionally abused and lied to by JW. I can image what rubbish she has written down on the form. She said that she was not going to put it down as theft. Was that revenge for complaining to the IPCC? What is it if it is not theft. Of course its theft? My cat did not rent a flat and feed herself for the 9 months she was imprisoned by an evil psycho from Mill Lane, Thetford, who should not be living on her own as she is a danger to all cats in our area. JW was rude and aggressive and said you are not going to like this. She went on to lie about the officers searching the house. They would need a Warrant to do so. As the Old Woman switched her story and she and her daughter both lie about her cat stealing. The Old Woman lied and told them she did not have my cat.They are nice to the criminals and stab the victims in the back. She had the audacity to say I am not going back there again, we could be charged with harassment.I was intimidated by the cat thief's daughter who knocked on my door after I told them to return my cat. She screamed her mother's innocent because this is what liars do, alter their voices to cover the lies. JW said she was going to get back to me before she went on holiday, that was on 12th January 2016. I have not heard anything more from the liar. I do not want to hear from the bully again. She is employed to cause mayhem and not solve crimes. Norfolk Police are not fit for purpose and are a waste of time. We would be better off

I had a log made against my name for harassment, made by a mental health service I was engaged with. They made the call to the police based on NO evidence. Details of this I wasn't aware of until a month or so after the incident. As I have recently stood up for myself and made the conduct of these people public, not just the police log, I receive an sms from the managing director claiming abusive messaging for my posts online and that he has called the police. I have not harassed him. It is clearly him retaliating fro the fact that I made the conduct of him and his colleagues public.

This whole country is now corrupt from the top down, with police covering up for inappropriate and grossly incompitant actions, politicians, council workers, dwp workers, wca assesors, all working the head, fiddling paper work and subsequent reports, in order to make themselves look good and covering up for massive levels of incopitence and harassment, of large groups of people. In this country now its the most ruthless, evil, devious, head working obnoxious bullying people who, get what they want.

Hi,, may I please place here on an issue that has happenend to myself.Which I feel really badly let down by the police.Due to my downstairs neighbours. (Whom I've always helped them when ever they had asked me). However, there was always issues regards to there oldest daughter. To whom had re-created some issues trouble back in 2015. And on June 2016 I had tried to speak to this young 22 year old politelyby asking her to stop all this trouble she was causing.(Which her two parents where there... and this taking. Place while walking my young dog).Then the father had decided to jump in by being intimidating towards me. And prevented me more than once to enter in to main close area. With threats aimed at me. And telling his daughter call police. (Before Anything had happenend). She went in close area to house to do this. (But to claim herself being false whiteness).Due to the father being threatening towards me my dog had tried to bite him. Which i was making sure he was not able to do. As with trying to detain my dog by the use of my right hand and right leg in front of him. Was then man hit me. I did hit him back. Again as I was trying to enter in close area the wife grabs my hair from behind and punches me twice. I then could only pull her hair down to stop her punching.Police came out and family falsely accused me of assault (to both!So meaning I was fully able to assault attack two adults with only having the use of my left hand and leg... and trying to detain my dog at the same time).Also falsely accused me of racism comments. Which again not of truth.(also I not have any history record of such accusations ever to be against me and never being in trouble) (And this family had also placed onto housing officer in our housing with accusations of being racism and stalking the whole family). The police had seen some of my injuries on that night. However the police had decided to believe there statements. I had tried to place counter charges on to those responsible for injuries placed on me.Police refused me my own rights to do this. By saying due to the both of them not admitting to this and there's no evidence to place counter charges.Even though I had told them that there is evedence as I've taken pics of all injuries. But no they refused. I tried this second time counter charges as I know this is wrong to refuse me my own rights to do thismore upsetting was comment made byone of officers saying to me on phone "this will not be placed on your record till your found guilty". Which I found this wrong with him saying such comments like this on to me.I feel that this police officer had something majorly against me,, regardless with the fact that I'm not even known to the police as I've never been In trouble. But yet I'm being treated in this unfair way. ?? Thank you.

In 2013, I was harassed and intimidated by a gang of Youths. They made a number of false allegations against me including that I had assaulted a young mother and her baby (who was in the group) In fact it was me that was assaulted and my glasses were broken. They called the Police and the police spoke to them first. I told the police I had been assaulted and showed them the broken glasses. They took no notice and six weeks later I had to voluntary attend the Police Station. I was interviewed under caution. The decision was made to refer the matter to the CPS. I was not charged nor was I put in Police Custody. Yet when I voluntary attended my DNA, fingerprints and photos were taken. The CPS decided to charge me with Section 39 Assault .I entered a plea of not guilty. It took 11 months for the case to come before the Magistrates. During the trial the accuser admitted no assault had taken place, thus changing her version of events. The case was dismissed. I made a complaint against the constabulary involved. They are stating that I was charged and in police custody and therefore they were permitted to take my dna, fingerprints and photos. I was not charged by police and neither was I in police custody. They say they took independent witnesses statements but they were all from the group of Youths, no witness appeal was made by the police. The treatment by the police has left me with PTSD.I believe they did not investigate the matter, or treat the case subjectively and impartially. The Constabulary have not upheld my complaint. I have taken my complaint to the IPCC but they are still saying that the police were permitted to take my dna because I was charged and in police custody.This is factually incorrect information. Is there anything I can do? As anyone got any advice for me?Thank you.

I was arrested by GMP as my ex said I made a death threat to her and I said I had not made the threat but was given a police pin noticentre so I have not been able to talk to her since 3 March 2016 so not been able to ask to see my girls 8 and 11. She made multiple death threats to me including when I was in hospital that will have been documented. Then she made more death threats aimed at me through my daughter with two being recorded but the police talked to her without talking to me as my daughter went to them and said I'm disabled I have daily seizures and have a bad back and already had a spinal operation and sleeping on my ladding floor in fear for my life and it's the only place with no window. I was arrested at 7pm onot the day I came out of hospital just as I was about to start eating my tea. I have a morphine patches on 24/7 and in custody I had my medication 13 items at 10 pm and at 8am and using oral morphine in custody but was offered cereal at 7 am but I said I can not have milk it makes me sick due to medication I was held till 2pm so 19 hours with no food and my meds say to be taken with food but the police say they have done nothing wrong I think our police are a bunch of complete idiots.

I have this on footage which is of good qauality. As i left the court but still on their premises i was attavked by a group, sexually asssulted and robbed. The court officials didnt helo nor did security. Police showed lack if interest in this. I raised a complaint upon raising a complaibt i was called in for an interview.. i was qyestioned why i had spat whilst my sister getting attacked. I told them to defend myself. I was later told to accept a caution. I refused officer harrased me in accepting this. Matter went to court was found not guilty and in fact i had used reasonable force.

I was in my kitchen cooking with my son, the kitchen door was open and we heard a knock, two police officers who failed to identify themselves by number despite many requests. They asked who i was I said why, at this point the male officer starts ranting and swearing at me, grabs me by the neck drags me outside slams me into a wall and starts punching my sides, I managed to turned my back and the assault continued, then out of the darkness two huge blokes, now known to be warrent officers ran round the corner and joined in the beating, one even smashed my arm into the corner of a wall, a suspected fractured elbow the result. One of the warrent officers also man handled my fifteen year old son. At no point did anybody identify themselves or explain why they were there. I struggled back into my house and they called for back up, five officers forced me into cuffs despite me clearly in an anxiety attack and some what battered and bruised, they forced me to pay a £450 fine or threaten to lock me up and have my children put into Care. What are my rights in this, my son witnessed it all and got most of it on video.

LostPsmith - 8-Jan-17 @ 5:39 AM
Some 3 years ago I was taken in by a Con Man, who knowingly and intentionally lied and deceived me in order to take advantage. He took money from me, "used" and psychologically abused me.When I discovered the truth - everything he had told me were lies - I publicly exposed him in order to warn others.He had me arrested for harassment.I pleaded not guilty at Crown Court.My abuser was allowed special measures to appear behind a screen in court, under oath he described himself as "A Mouse" and admitted to telling lies. Because I showed no remorse, the Judge gave me a 12 month sentence, 6 months custodial.I served 5 months in jail. Whilst in jail and out on probation I wrote to the arresting officer, trying to prove my innocence and sending him evidence which wasn't allowed to be put before the court, along with expressing my dismay at how the police and court had also been taken in by the same cunning and devious person who fooled me.There were no threats or abuse in the letters. 10 weeks have elapsed since writing the last of the letters, all addressed to the police station, to which I had no acknowledgement or any communication whatsoever to ask me not to write any further.The letters were my way of trying to deal with the horrendous situation I was going through, being in jail - a victim of someone with no conscience.I underwent counselling to help me try and come to terms with the nightmare of events brought about by the dishonesty of that person.2 weeks ago I was contacted by my local police to attend an interview - the police officer I wrote the letters to has reported me for harassment.What he is hoping to gain?Having me sent back to prison?Compensation?I think I have been punished enough for what I considered to be my "duty" when I exposed the person who exploited me.Yes, perhaps I should have reported my abuser to the police in the first place, as my probation officer advised, but, would they have done anything about him?He told me his daughter was a police officer - how true that is, I don't know.I have an appointment with my Solicitor next week. I am innocent and want to plead Not Guilty, but, because of my last experience, I really don't think it would be in my best interest to do so, the way the law works. I have always held the police andjudicial system in high regard, having neverbeen in trouble with the law before, but I am afraid,the way I have been treat, I can no longer trust them.

I have a stepdad who has a low iq of 62 and was falsely accused of csc. He has many character witnesses who was not involved with the investigation of the local police. There were a few others that were not questioned during this investigation. Also during the investigation they did not make him aware of the allegations until the prosecutor issued a warrant to pick him up. The investigation only consisted ofhim, his wife, his mom but that was only after the arrest. They talked to one neighbor that didn't really know him that long but if they would have questioned his grand kids that were there which was left unsaid and also myself they would have followed through with their investigation. During this investigation they would have discovered the accusers were involved in a prior case which the gentleman pleaded guilty to as well as discovered the testimony of the accusers was also stated in the other case as well. So i wanna say the investigation was improperly handled and now the stepdad is in prison for a crime that had never been committed due to this mishandled investigation.

UnhappySister- Your Question:
Just wanted to get advice. So my brother has a record because of someone's lie but because sexual issues are taken very serious he is still waiting for things to be sorted out. There is no evidence so police keep extending the date of when he has to go into the station to clear his record as he hasn't been charged. The problem is he has been beaten up several times and threatened because of this case. (Not sure how people finding out about this but I obviously have my predictions it's from the source of where the lies came from in the first place - but no evidence so that information I said is irrelevant). He has even been beaten up and had to go hospital by guys his age (17ish). My brother and my dad of course are keeping track of every little evidence they get now. So my brother reported the last time to the police and the police said to my brother that "it's all part of the package". Is that right? How can a policeman say it's all the part of the package? My dad wants to wait till after the case is sorted which by the looks of them pushing back dates will be never, to make a complaint about this? Should he put in a complaint now or wait till the case is solved?

Our Response:
It's probably best to wait until the case is resolved - but it might be worth seeking professional legal advice on this.

In September 2014 IAPT Croydon made a Referral in behalf of my daughter to the Local Authority and Metropolitan Police about child abuse. My ex husband abused sexually our daughter. The Metropolitan Police didn't recorded the abuse,didn't open an investigation reason for which we don't have a Criminal Reference Number we didn't have a case in Crown Prosecution Service and we don't have a Unic Reference Number from CPS and we have a letter from ACPO(Data Protection ) in which they confirm us that; the Metropolitan Police didn't recorded the allegation in the National Computer Sistem. The Children Social Service didn't recorded my daughter like a subject in section 47 under the CA/1989 and they didn't do a Family and Child Assessment, any Child Protection Plan any Court Order. The GP didn't recorded the allegations in my daughter Medical Record and didn't do the Section 7 Medical . This mind that my daughter after she was abused she don't have any medical assistance. For this reason after two years from the incident I made an appointment for her to CAMSH and she had a PTSD with episode of depression or panick attack or colaps. I made a complaint for all this institution and they telling me that they worked correctly . I have in Royal Court an application for my daughter custody and I need evidence like the Court decision, Plan Protection Plan, Bail Conditione or Section 7 Medical and they don't can give me nothing. Also my ex was caused by paedophilia. In this case the Metropolitan Police put my daughter like a SUSPECT OF CRIME and they blame my daughter if she has 11 years. My ex put in court evidence like a clear CRB he doesn't have recorded nothing in his CRB. After which Law work all this institution when they destroy the life for children and the Government cover them? What I must to do now to live my daughter with a paedophile?

Disappointment- Your Question:
After 29 years of living in a residential area we have such inconsiderate neighbours who think this is a bus depot parking almost 10 buses doing repairs spray painting idling the buses at all odd ours, a family member of mine even picked up a lung disease due to all the fumes ect,. After contacting metro police,town planning parks and gardens on numerous occasions including files that was opened regarding this matter we still have no joy as it would seem our neighbours work hand in hand with the aboved mentioned reason for this its been two years and they have still no concluded their investigations despite having have all the evidence that we have provided at a stage all evidence even went missing from town planning. It is really sad that we are not getting any solid help from anyone.

Our Response:
You could try a private legal action if this is not going anywhere and you feel you have a case.

After 29 years of living in a residential area we have such inconsiderate neighbours who think this is a bus depot parking almost 10 buses doing repairs spray painting idling the buses at all odd ours, a family member of mine even picked up a lung disease due to all the fumes ect,. After contacting metro police,town planning parks and gardens on numerous occasionsincluding files that was opened regarding this matter we still have no joy as it would seem our neighbours work hand in hand with the aboved mentioned reason for this its been two years and they have still no concluded their investigations despite having have all the evidence that we have provided at a stage all evidence even went missing from town planning.It is really sad that we are not getting any solid help from anyone.

I made a complaint against the police for not investigating my harrassment claim against a neighbour and them sending a report that I reported this neighbour for being a paedophile which was a LIE and they had 0 proof yet they sent this to my landlord who now is looking at any excuse to evict me and wont pay attention to my complaints against this neighbour. Because i made a complaint the police have gone on to harrass me and bully me, they wouldnt even allow me to have an appropriate adult at my interview where they charged me with harrassment against the neighbour and wasting police time because apparently I am uncontacble but this officer has been able to harrass me by calling me 24/7 fine but they put on the charge sheet I cannot be contacted lol its laughable Its disgusting these people even exist in the police force imagine I went to police AS A VICTIM and I am the one going to court and the ONLY evidence they have is this neighbours WORD but I have several witnesses, recordings and paper evidence that the neighbour has made false allegations, sexual harassment and threats yet NOTHING they wont even investigate I am a disabled coloured woman he is a white man so I suppose what he says goes.
