Dear Sir or Madam,

Please could you provide me with as much of the following data as you have available:

1. The total number of searches carried out by the force under "stop and account" powers. Please supply this data by month, for as many months as are available.
2. A breakdown of the total number of "stop and account" searches by the subject's self-defined ethnicity. Please supply this data by month as above.

I understand that not all forces record "stop and account" searches, but I would be grateful for any data you do have.

Thank you for your attention, and please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like me to clarify this request.

Yours faithfully,

Anna Powell-Smith

Dear Gwent Police,

I'd just like to clarify the wording in my request: I'm interested in the number of _stops_ made under "stop and account" powers, not the number of _searches_.

As you may have spotted, "stop and account" powers by definition do not involve searches!

If you do not record "stop and account", or do not use "stop and account" by policy, I'd also be interested in knowing that.

Apologies for any confusion, and thanks for considering my request.

Yours faithfully,

Anna Smith

Dear Freedom Of Information,

Thank you very much for your response. Please could I just clarify: do these numbers relate to "stop and account" or "stop and search" stops?

Yours sincerely,
