Police discrimination claims

The law does not allow the police or public authorities to discriminate against people because of age, disability, gender re-assignment, marriage or civil partnership, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. If you feel you have been the victim of police discrimination or discrimination by any other public body speak to our specialist legal team on 01616 966 229.

The police are not allowed to stop and search you on the street just because of your race. If the police do discriminate against you for one or more of the above mentioned characteristics, then you may be entitled to claim compensation.

  • Compensation claims against the police and public bodies/authorities which include discrimination
