Section 60

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Rachael Venables

Dear West Yorkshire Police,

During each of the past five financial years, how many section 60 'stop and search' orders have been put in place in your force area?

(2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20)

During each of the past five financial years, how many searches under section 60 orders have carried out in your force area?

Please list each search with details of the ethnicity and gender of the suspect, and the outcome of the search, (including details of what was found if possible.)

Yours faithfully,

Rachael Venables
