I must say that as a police officer, this behavior on the part of the officers was not right... There must be a body that takes complaints in
Australia. I'm sure you can find it on the internet...
I know that here in Quebec, we are liable under 6 separate laws, and can be found guilty and punished under each one at the same time, no double
jeopardy rule applies to us.
If you want, U2U me your local police force name, the area or anything that I can use to find out about them, and I can get back to you on how to
lodge a complaint, and any other recourse you may have available to you there...
If your friend was fined, ticketed, or charged, the officer's name and badge # will be on the paperwork. If not, just contest the fine and go to
court, you'll find it out that way.
It angers me when this happens because then I also look bad for the actions of others...
Tell your mate to hang in there.
ETC : Edit to correct... I mistakenly thought OP is in UK not Australia... Sorry!
