Dealing with the police

Everyone knows that the police have powers they can use against you if they think you have committed a crime (or are about to commit a crime). But whatever the situation, the police should always treat you with respect. This film looks at what action you can take to get an apology, or to make sure it doesn't happen to someone else. If what happened to you was very serious, you may even be able to get compensation.
