Stop & Search

Flyer with stop and search adviceBe careful – police do not always follow the law or respect our rights. Try to record the search or get witnesses. Read our leaflet on dealing with the police.

Before you are searched, the police MUST tell you

  • What law they are using
  • Their reason for searching you
  • Their name or badge number
  • What they are looking for
  • That you can have a copy of the ‘search form’

REMEMBER!

  • You NEVER have to give your personal details to the police if you are just being searched
  • You DO NOT have to answer police questions or “account” for yourself
