This is an HTML version of an attachment to the Freedom of Information request 'Stop and account statistics (if collected)'.

FOIA - 715/19 - Stop & account
Under the Freedom of Information Act I request:-
I was incorrect in my initial request, for which apologies: I am interested in "stop and account" stops, not searches. (By definition, "stop and 
account" does not involve searches, so I should have said "stops" rather than "searches".)
Does Northumbria Police use "stop and account" powers, and if so, do they record the number of stops made under these powers?
Please could you provide me with data for the past three years on:
1. The total number of stops carried out by the force under "stop and account" powers. Please supply this data by month.
