If you are stopped and questioned on suspicion of doing something wrong, or if the police think that you can help them with the investigation of an offence or suspected offence, the police have to follow rules called General Orders and abide by certain laws.

See our publication In Trouble With the Law on our Publications page if you need legal help.

See also our Police and You factsheet and our Complaints about Police factsheet.
