Community complaints trigger

A community complaint can be triggered if Bedfordshire Police receives a significant rise in concerns from the public about its use of stop and search.

Examples include:

  • a significant rise in the amount of stop and search related complaints against police.
  • a significant change in the numbers of one ethnic group being stopped and searched compared to others.
  • a single stop and search incident that has caused considerable concern within the community
  • any other issue upon consultation with the Bedfordshire Police Lead for stop and search or the appropriate Area Command Team

In the event that a community complaint is triggered, the stop and search community scrutiny panel will investigate.
