How to Complain About the Courts and Police

Court Complaining Court Justice Appeals

The police and courts attempt to operate efficiently, but there may be incidents where you believe that you have been treated unfairly. In these cases you are completely within your legal rights to to make a complaint. The justice system we have is based in fairness. The law requires that defendants can usually appeal a court decision, and that citizens complaining about the court that has dealt with their case or the police are given a fair hearing.

How to Complain About the Police

There is an independent body called the Police Complaints Authority (PCA). This was set-up by central government to give the public a mechanism by which they could make complaints against the police. Each police force has its own complaints team that deal specifically with complaints directed at their officers.

Complaints about the police can range from minor offenses such as the use of excessive force during an arrest, to more serious complaints such as racism, or the death of a suspect in custody. The police are governed by a Code of Practice that gives them guidelines on how to behave and carry out their duties. You can see a copy of this code at your local library. It’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the code before you make a complaint.

Note that you should make your complaint within 12 months of the incident you are complaining about. Also, any serious incidents will have to go to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) for consideration. If you have a complaint and live in England and Wales you make your complaint about the police in a number of ways. These include:

  • By contacted the police force directly
  • Via your solicitor or other legal representative
  • With the help of your local MP
  • With the help of the Citizens Advice Bureau

If you live in Scotland you should direct your complaint to the chief constable of the police force concerned. If the incident is serious and involved an officer breaking the law, your complaint should be directed to the Procurator Fiscal Service as this is the same as the CPS in England and Wales. And if you are in Northern Ireland, contact the Police Ombudsman.

How to Complain About the Courts

If you feel that the court handling your case hasn’t done so professionally, and you haven’t received proper justice in your case, you can make a complaint directly with the court by contacting a member of the court staff either in person or via phone. You may want to make your complain more formal and in writing. If this is the case you need to complete form EX343A. You can download the form from the HMCS website. You should receive a reply about your complaint within 5 working days. When you make your complaint ensure that:

  • You describe all the facts relating to your complaint in as much detail as possible
  • Clearly explain why you think the court made a mistake with your case
  • What loss (if any) you have suffered as a consequence of the mistake or conduct of the court

If you are making a complaint about a specific member of court staff, and feel you have made a loss, you may be able to claim compensation. This will depend on the nature of your complaint.

Any complaint you make will be investigated and a decision made about any action to be taken. If you disagree with the outcome of your complaint, you can ask the Area Director to further consider your complaint. And if you are still not satisfied with the Area Director’s decision about your complaint, you can contact the Customer Service Unit by telephone on: 0845 4568770 or 020 7189 2000. Disability Helpline/Textphone: Freephone 0800 358 3506.

If after going through this procedure you still believe your complaint hasn’t been dealt with properly, you can contact the The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. You can’t contact this service directly, but your MP can help you make contact with them.

How to Complain About a Judge or Judicial Decision

After the court case you are involved with has finished and you feel that your case wasn’t dealt with properly under the law, or that the presiding judge didn’t perform their duties in accordance with the law, you can make an appeal. Appeals can be effective, but take legal advice before you proceed with your complaint. All appeals need to be made quickly and directly to the court where your case was heard.

Making complaints about specific judges will mean contacting the Office for Judicial Complaints. You can telephone them on: 20 3334 2555, or visit their website

Complaining about a magistrate will mean you have to contact the local Advisory Committee. The court where you case was heard can give you their contact details. If you are not happy with their decision, you can then take your complaint to the Office for Judicial Complaints.

We were cc some emails regarding this case The CPS and the police were involved with hiding Evidence at the crown court in reading berks However the Witness was found lying in court As she falsely claimed being kidnapped but The court was shown pictures of her Christmas shopping together with the kidnapper in London 1 week after she claimed she was kidnapped Full of toilet waste lying to the crown court And the lying witness was arrested for various Assaults by Staines police station. Cant believe that that person was able to lie And get away with perverting the course of justice with help from the crooked Cops at Windsor police station. I read the man was sent to prison unfairly Because the email said the cps/police were Hiding evidence from the court. I have never trusted the police. Horrific domestic violence by a woman who shouldn't have been in the UK. Lcj.office@judiciary.uk

We read the case files about this miscarriage And noticed that Matthew knight was under A huge amount of pressure with various case Loads of back dated cases being placed on His work load I saw the Surrey police force Reports of how they had enough evidence To keep the illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues In custody but gave her bail after she gave Surrey police false details to the police in July 2016. We also approached the John Radcliffe hospital who gave us information on the mental health issues of the illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues Who was diagnosed by the John Radcliffe hospital with severe physiological problems After she gave birth to a baby girl August 2016 I cant understand how the illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues was able to not be placed In custody for the horrendoums domestic violence she committed against the man She was witnessed on various occasions Assaulting the man with various weapons But the evidence was hidden from the criminal court trial in April 2017 which in deed lead to A gross miscarriage of justice as to hide Crucial evidence from a crown court case is nothing more than unlawful behaviour . privateoffice.EdwardArgar@justice.gov.uk

We were aware of this corruption in Jan 2018 As we were speaking with Tan ikram QC We understand that the police officers from The Thames valley were involved with hiding Vital Evidence from the criminal courts . We also spoke to Surrey police force about The illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues who Was arrested for a Serious ABH charge but Made bail after giving false details to Surrey police force in July 2016 from Staines police How our colleagues from hmcts were able To confirm with the John Radcliffe hospital That this illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues Was diagnosed with severe physiological mental health problems after giving birth to a baby August 2016 but the hospital report was hidden by the Thames valley police department. The sad part is the Innocent man who was Sent to prison Was the real victim as the illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues was involved with stabbing him and burning his body but got away Scot free because the Surrey police force was Incompetent police force in 2016 Egham. We also read the Case files on how the CPS Lead Prosecutor was So overwhelmed with Criminal case management he failed to check The Thames valley police officers Prosecution Case files leading to the Victim of extreme domestic violence being Wrongly prosecuted By the CPS overworked caseloads. Tan ikram told us the illegal immigrant had no right to give false evidence as she was here Illegally since 2013 after obtaining a false travel document in South India after agreeing to pay 6 grand for the travel IDs to come to the UK. Truly shocking case of the CPS and the police Getting it so Wrong that a Innocent man goes To prison instead of the illegal immigrant who was the violent perpetrator Freeda rodrigues. Tan also said the illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues also left voicemail recordings on the Innocent man's mobile phone planning to plant drugs on him and cause criminal damage to his home in egham Surrey but the Thames valley police department made sure they were hidden from the criminal court case in Reading 2017 So they could frame the Innocent man instead Of convicting the illegal immigrant Freeda As the Thames valley police department who Were given bank statements proving Freeda rodrigues was paying people in India for the False travel papers Were also hidden from the criminal courts in Reading Berkshire April 2017 Which led to a Grave failure of policing and Miscarriage of justice allowing a violent person To evade Justice and give a false statement In court at Reading Berkshire.

April 2017 TVP/CPS allowed a illegal immigrant To give false testimony at Reading crown court The illegal immigrant told TVP/CPS she had been kidnapped by Mr hussain on 13 -12-16. The Defence team produced CCTV from TFL Of the illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues and Mr hussain Christmas shopping together in central London all captured on TFL cctv cameras Dated 21-12-16 so the illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues had been exposed lying at Reading crown court case April 2017 the TVP/CPS had Illegally and unlawfully Suppressed vital evidence Such as bank statements paying a people smuggler Amit Naik in Bombay India for Freeda rodrigues fake travel documents the TVP/CPS also felt the need to Withhold the John Radcliffe hospital reports diagnosing the illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues with physiological mental health problems in August 2016 the TVP/CPS also illegally witheld voicemails from the illegal immigrant Freeda rodrigues planning to plant drugs on Mr hussain all witheld by DC sukhi from Windsor police station Berkshire breaching Mr hussain human rights and legal rights. The inexperienced police officer DC sukhi also felt the need to hide Freeda rodrigues arrest sheet after she was arrested by Surrey police force for ABH against Mr hussain at egham train station Surrey 2016. Mr max hill QC is investigating the corrupt TVP/CPS unlawful actions which led to a Innocent man going to prison unlawfully 2017

Hello, can anybody advise me on this? We have had a case in for a refund which was failed to be given even after they admitted they owe the monies but can’t pay it! We had to go court and they transferred it to our local court I was advised around 3 weeks to get it to the judge and after 2 months I called they lost my case? It was found later that date stuffed down back of cabinet and they said they make it a priority 1 week later I called again and then told they not sure they will call me back the woman on phone said she would send me the allocation of the hearing??? It takes 1 min to read my papers and decided it doesn’t need £355 hearing charge and to wait until November 2019 for a hearing I have all supporting evidence! I strongly feel the judge hasn’t even looked at this at all! As another customer went to another court and they asked him for the evidence straight away.

I would like some advice on how to go about complaining about a county court judge. We recently went to a repossession hearing due to the fact that our landlord is trying to get us out of the property. We had previously been served with two invalid section 21 notices. The judge didn't listen to me and told me that tenants have no rights. He wouldn't read the letter from my doctor stating how all these housing issusues were causing me a huge amount of stress and making me ill. I felt sure that we would be heard and justice would be done and instead he was biased dismissive and rude towards me playing with paperclips when I spoke. I have now discovered that as the section 21 notices were invalid that we can get the possession order set aside because it shouldn't have been made but the down side is that we have to pay £255 in order to get it put aside. I feel upset and let down.

I have been in a controlling and coercive relationship for the last 30 years, as well as being psychologically and emotionally abused ("if you go for a walk you will be raped or murdered", not allowed to visit my mother more than once/year, have no friends, been forced to use my birthday money for things for the kids etc). At counselling, my ex said "this is so easy to fix - all she has to do is give in"Throughout the divorce process (2 years and still going on!) this is the approach he has taken, until I have run down the marital assets available in my name (obviously the majority are in his name).The legal system has allowed him to get away with not paying child maintenance for 2 years, lied on his form E about over £100,000, omitting £20,000 income at FDR, he is refusing to pay maintenance for our children whilst at university, knowing that I will go without food etc in order to support them. I have paid legal fees out of my interim maintenance, whilst he used marital assets.My barrister at FDR said I had 3 minutes to sign the agreement or it would cost me £50,000 to go to final hearing, so obviously I signed the Heads of Agreement (still waiting a pension report). In total, he has cheated me out of over £135,000! Apparently you can not raise "bad behaviour" in the divorce courts until final hearing, yet the costs to get that far are prohibitive. The system is so unjust as I, and many others no doubt, are just forced to give in as we can not afford to fight for what we are entitled to, and so people like my ex continue to exploit women and get away with it.Who do I complain to or how do I go about trying to change the system?
Denise - 30-Apr-19 @ 1:33 PM
There is no justice in the UK ,the judges do literally as they please ,as do the police ,our son was given 22yrs on a gbh with intent charge with no evidence ,the witness a local drug dealer,the judge had made up his mind over a cup of tea before any trial ,we believe and so did the whole gallery that the judge swayed the jury ,these trials should be televised and these judges have someone to answer to

I have identified a magistrates court signed off on a liability application outside of the magistrates court act 1980.The DJ was not satisfied to grant the liability order as the figures could not be proven nor relied upon and so placed the order in abeyance.I have recently had my appeal upheld and the magistrates court are now obstructing my filing a claim for compensation despite the company who brought the liability application nilling the original assessment. Meaning I was unfairly dragged through the courts for no reason, having paid my solicitor over 5 thousand pounds to date he does not specialise in compensation claims.I have been obstructed by the staff at the magistrates court repeatedly, I am now considering suing the magistrates court for this failure to deal with my case. subject to s.64 of the magistrates court act 1980 and the appeal tribunal court and enforcement act 2007.

Hi My partner has just been found guilty to conspiracy to class a drugs, there was never any drugs money, etc found in his possession, during the trial the judge allowed a juror who knew another defendants dad stay on the jury is this allowed ? Also evidence was used against my partner when someone else was given a caution at another address that was warrented. Is this allowed, when it came to sentencing the judge gave him an extra 2 years as he said that in 2011 he was charged with supplying class c, he has never been convicted of this charge ! I feel there was a misjustise during this trial, is there anyone out there who could possibly enlighten me on the law regarding this. Thank you in advance.

My husband received a NIP for a vehicle as he is the registered keeper but does not and did not drive the vehicle on the date of the incident. He wrote and told them he was not the driver of the vehicle and requested photographic evidence. There is no way he can identify who was driving the vehicle so passed the letter over to his wife who is responsible for the vehicle and is the main driver. He then receives a letter to inform him he has been charged with traffic offences. He wrote and informed them his wife was responsible for the vehicle and she has written to them. He never got a response until he received a letter from Southern Derbyshire Court confirming hearing date had been adjourned on the 23.8.17 which he had no idea about and did not receive any correspondence regarding this hearing only the letter to confirm it had been adjourned for the 1/11/17. All the information was given to CPS and he could not attend the hearing asked for an alternative court hearing near home. Last letter received from CPS was to contact them by secure CJSM email which he did not know what it was and there is no information on the letter how to do this. He searched google and got to the website but couldn't log on. So any additional information could not be sent in time of the hearing. The hearing on the 1/11/17 he has been fined with failing to give information to identify the driver £660 plus £66 victim surcharge and costs £150 with no explanation as to why and what information was presented to the judge. Is there anything he can do?

Ray - 18-Oct-17 @ 8:52 PM
The defendant was found not guilty, there was only one witness (1) that gave evidence and he lied, the witness(1) who is the defendants friend has loaned the defendant money and the defendant could only pay the witness (1) back if he was found not guilty. Is this not classed as conflict of interest? I feel the solicitor didn't do her job right. no witnessses were called on the victims behalf, 2 people were due to give evidence up until the day before and then were dropped without an explanation. Is there any organisation I can contact to help the victim? as the defendant got away because of what the witness(1) said. 3 witnesses can testify that his friend lied, I have two witnesses that can verify that his friend (witness 1) said the defendant owes him money. The defendant was charged with attempted rape, he was a manager were the victim works, (defendant was instructed by higher management to hand in his notice at the time of arrest)witness (1) whom also works now is making the victimwork life very difficult by spreading lies and trying to embarrass the victim. I also work at this company and I need to help my friend, I feel the company should stop witness (1) from making the victims life difficult. The defendant also broke his bail by contacting the victim, there was proof of this of social media message and he got away with that too as it didn't class as being intimidation. I feel a major injustice has been made.
