Been there. Easy. Make your formal complaint to police complaints. Speak to your solicitor. The warrant has to have a time limit.
You make a receipt stating that your computer system and cameras belonged to somebody else. The warrant is for your property.
When I got home from work I could see images on my CCTV of the police banging on my window. They were running up and down out the front of my property and they were climbing over the fence at the back of the property.
My dog was going crazy when I got home. while looking through the CCTV images the police returned.
They had a dog handler with one of those nooses and instead of knocking on the door they started to kick the front door in!
I quickly opened the front door as I did so they try to push their way in I grabbed the dog handlers noose pulled it off of him and threw it back out.
My dog is not a domestic dog it is a properly trained protection dog/guard dog.
The police said they will get a warrant so I told him to get a warrant.
They said they was not going to leave until they seized the dog, Unless I give them the CCTV system, all of it plug everything.
I told them to take the dog and I will lodge a complaint and reclaim the dog. I told him he cannot come in to take the dog.
We started pushing each other and the dog went crazy they backed off and I slammed the door closed and quickly rushed to the phone.
I telephoned the solicitor, which we use he told me if I have anything there to record them with do so and make sure they know that I am doing it.
I did that. They stood outside the property for about half an hour. Eventually I received a telephone call and it was the police (how did they get my telephone number ).
A policewoman tried to speak to me all nicely and apologise for the unprofessional behaviour of her colleagues.
She then asked if she could come round and take my CCTV system on a temporary basis.
The crime was only a prophetic crime somebody selling marijuana in little packages. Remember I live in this neighbourhood..
I told her the CCTV is not switched on it is just for show.
I then made my complaint about the police the next day to police complaints which you have to do on the Internet.
They said my complaint would go on the permanent record of the police officers involved and where ever those police are transferred to my complaint will go with them on their permanent record.
Does not sound like anything happened but it was worth making the complaint.
