Stop and Search of black African Caribbean people

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear West Yorkshire Police,

I am part of the African Caribbean community in Huddersfield, I have a group online with over 200 people that have come together since the BLM movement has risen again, on the back of the George Floyd murder which has had a global effect on our communities.

I am doing research on Stop and Searches (SaS) within our community. Not the BAME community as a whole, just black ethnicity alone. I would like to know the statistics of SaS for our black African Caribbean community for the period 01.01.2020 to 26.08.2020.

I very much appreciate your help with this request.

Yours faithfully,

Miss U L Alexis
