Stop and search: your rights

Before you're searched, an officer must tell you:

  • their name and police station
  • what they expect to find
  • the reason they want to search you
  • why they are legally allowed to search you

Support our work

We aim to address excess and disproportionate stop and search, promote best practice and ensure fair, effective policing for all.
