The request was successful.

Dear North Yorkshire Police,

I am looking for statistics regarding how many children aged 10 and under have been stopped and searched by police in the North Yorkshire region, in the years 2017, 2018, 2019, and, where your records allow, 2020 thus far.

I am also requesting a breakdown of exactly how many children of each age (e.g. 1 through to 10) have been stopped and searched, as well as the overall figure.

I am also requesting reports and comments by any officers involved in each individual case - as to why they stopped and searched each child

Yours faithfully,

George Boswell
