We monitor the police locally, nationally and offer ongoing support and know your rights workshops.

Our Mission

Our objectives are street-based monitoring of problem officers and units in targeted communities in Bristol and Avon and Somerset. We believe in building safer communities and support those on the receiving end of police brutality and harassment. We can offer support before and after a journey through the courts and will challenge the police and help you take action.

Why we are fund raising

We are a community focused grass roots collective of community activists and members with many years of experience dealing with the police on the streets. We are currently fund raising for costs associated with sustainability, support work and community outreach.

Supporting those in need requires a kind heart, an understanding of the law and a lot of time and dedication. We are creating a donation pool to help cover some of the ongoing costs associated with support work such as travel to court and to begin to build a pot to help with court costs for those not eligible for legal aid.

Additionally, we are fund raising for a website, ongoing event and workshop fees and for know your rights fliers, leaflets and more! If you can donate to our project you will be helping a new community focused police monitoring group continue to help those who need us the most.

We see the same issues you do. Let’s fight for change in 2023 and beyond. You can donate to our vital work on our Open Collective account.
