Making a complaint to the Police – if the response provided by email or by attending officers is unsatisfactory/inadequate

There is a dedicated process to address complaints for all residents of Hampshire and Isle of Wight. Individual cases should be discussed through the 101 service (where supervisors are available to address complaints). This helps to identify the right department/individual concerned in order for appropriate actions to be taken ASAP.

Alternatively, additional information about complaints can be found here, including an online ‘complaint form’ to submit a written complaint: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/advice/advice-and-information/c/complaints/what-is-a-complaint/
