Talk to us

If you have been stopped and searched on at least three occasions in a six month period you can request a review by emailing stopsearch@btp.pnn.police.uk. A review of the fairness and legitimacy of your search will be carried out.

Requests will be reviewed by the Stop and Search Inspector who will notify you of the outcome in writing. Reviews can also be requested by a third party such as MP, local councillor, community group, or a carer for a vulnerable person or for someone with disabilities that would prevent you from requesting a case review yourself.

A third party can only request a review on your behalf if they have your consent. Checks will be made to ensure that third party requests are genuine; and you will be contacted to ensure that you are happy with the request being made.

What are we doing if no one asks for a review?

Where personal details are provided we will check our police systems to carry out a review of any people that have been stopped and searched on at least three occasions in a six month period. We will then inform them of the outcome in writing.
