Campaign: To show people how to handle a stop and search situation

I had a frustrating encounter with the police after I was stopped and searched by officers outside a local shop.

 

My concern was that people would assume that I was guilty of a crime even though I had done nothing wrong.

 

Stop and search by police is standard protocol but getting frustrated and stressed can make matters worse.

 

I want to show young people that knowing your rights and being relaxed can help the process go more smoothly.

 

With Fixers, I've created a film to provide helpful tips and guidance to anyone who feels anxious under police questioning and to help them remain calm.
