What can the Police stop me for?

< All Topics

The police can stop you if there has been serious violence or disorder in the area, or they are searching for someone who fits your description, if they have reasonable suspicion to suspect you’re carrying drugs, a weapon or stolen property or to counter terrorism.

The police are not allowed to stop you just because of your religious beliefs, political opinion, race, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disability, the way you look, or the clothes that you’re wearing.
