The Independant Police Complaints Commission
Complaints against Police can also be made to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC), who must by law forward details to the relevant police force for action. Due to the exceptionally high numbers of complaints made to the IPCC, it can take a number of weeks before a complaint is forwarded to the relevant police force. In order to have your complaint dealt with as quickly as possible you may prefer to contact the Constabulary directly. Please click How can I make a complaint about the conduct of a person serving with the police? to see how you can make a complaint directly to Cambridgeshire Constabulary.
The IPCC can be contacted as follows:

The IPCC also investigates the most serious complaints and allegations of misconduct against the police in England and Wales. These complaints are referred to the IPCC by police forces. The IPCC may decide to investigate an incident using its own investigators (referred to as an independent investigation). Alternatively, it can manage or supervise a police investigation into the matter. The IPCC will only conduct independent investigations into incidents that cause the greatest level of public concern – for example, deaths in or following police custody.
