Harassment By Police Officers

Harassment by Police Officers


Harassment by police officers may constitute misconduct, for example, if police officers misuse stop and search, carry out searches without a warrant, carry out surveillance on premises or a home without lawful authority, or make threats against an individual. Sexual harassment may also be a factor in police harassment.


Whether an individual has a criminal record or not, police have a duty to conduct investigations properly and within The Code of Conduct for Police Officers and the Code of Ethics.


Feeling targeted by the police can be extremely frightening and distressing especially in cases where an individual has had no previous dealings with the police, but feels they are being harassed by police officers.


Duncan Lewis Action Against Public Authorities solicitors can advise on making complaints about police harassment to a police force, as well as advising on protective measures to stop police harassment and making a compensation claim for police harassment.


There is a 12-month time limit to making a police complaint, and so it is vital to get in touch with Duncan Lewis as soon as possible.


We frequently advise on cases involving police harassment – and our solicitors are well placed to advise on claims involving police harassment or police misconduct in office.


Duncan Lewis may be able to secure legal aid, or to offer a no win no fee arrangement for police harassment claims – or, alternatively, competitively priced fixed fees or hourly rates, as well as After the Event (ATE) insurance for compensation claims.
