Complaints about the police - Outcome
What happens after the police investigate my complaint?
After the police have finished investigating your complaint, they will let you know and tell you what will happen next. The police force may:
- agree that something went wrong,
- apologise to you,
- change their policies or procedures, or
- speak to the person you complained about to improve their performance.
In some cases, the police may not have enough evidence to take any action over your complaint. If you are not happy with the outcome, you should explore the options in the next section.
