Stop and account statistics (if collected)

We're waiting for Anna Smith to read a recent response and update the status.

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

Good morning,

 

I write to you with regards to your Freedom of Information request which
we received on 10/05/2019, reference 1731/19.

 

Unfortunately, we are not obliged to extract data up until we reach the
Freedom of Information cost threshold, therefore are you please able to
provide us with a time frame for the data that you require?

 

The ‘clock’ counting down the 20 working day protocol for disclosure will
be stopped until clarification has been received from yourself. I.e.
clarification has been sought on the 1st day, therefore when clarification
has been received we shall still have 19 working days to deal with your
request.

 

Please note that if we do not receive any clarification from you be
advised that your request will be closed with no further action after 20
working days.

 

If there is anything further you would like to discuss, please do not
hesitate to contact me via the below telephone number.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Olivia

Dear FOI,

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 the confusion, and thanks for considering my request.

Yours sincerely,

Anna Smith
