StopWatch complaints guide

StopWatch has created an easy-to-use guide for making complaints against the police

Our complaints guide aims to de-mystify the police complaints process and provide tips and guidance on how to make a complaint.

May 2024 update: our new complaints guide is coming soon! We have also produced a shorter print version of the guide. To receive free copies, please get in touch with us at
