Dear Requests,

Thank you for your response.

However, I'm interested in the number of stops made under "stop and account" powers. This is different from "stop and search". (Apologies for the confusion in my wording.)

Do you use "stop and account" powers, and if so, do you record stops carried out under these powers?

Yours sincerely,

Anna Smith

Dear Miss Smith

 

YOUR REQUEST:
However, I'm interested in the number of stops made under "stop and
account" powers. This is different from "stop and search". (Apologies for
the confusion in my wording.)

Do you use "stop and account" powers, and if so, do you record stops
carried out under these powers?

Previous request 11472

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.

OUR RESPONSE:

 

There is no information held – there is no requirement to record Stop &
Account information. 

 

If you are not satisfied with the decision applied in this case I enclose
for your attention a copy of the Constabulary's appeal procedures.
