Police complaints are just one of the ways that we can assist you in holding police forces and officers to account for their actions.

If you would like to speak with one of our team about your situation please call us on 0808 252 9542.
Our experienced and dedicated team of solicitors know how complex, challenging and emotionally demanding the process can be and they will guide you through every step of the way. They can assist you from the initial complaint, to an appeal to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC); and where necessary, a judicial review of the IOPC’s decision.
Our team has brought successful complaints in high profile cases, such as the death of Fiona Pilkington which resulted in misconduct proceedings against officers who failed to investigate her complaints of harassment. They have secured apologies from various forces including from Essex Police following their mistreatment of those arrested during the Dale Farm evictions and from the Metropolitan Police following the unlawful arrest of an anti-monarchist demonstrator during the Royal Wedding in 2011.
