Avon & Somerset Police Authority
Home > Scrutiny > Stop and Search
We know that the way that the police use their powers to stop and search people can sometimes create tensions within our communities. We want you to know what your rights are when you are stopped by a police officer and what you can do if you feel you have been treated unfairly.
Further information on stop and search can be found on the Home Office website in: Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE) code of practice A.
