  • Hi, we are Aaron, Satwant & GregWe are presenting Stop & Search
  • One of the powers that the police sometimes use to prevent crime in the local community is the power of stop and search. This means that police officers and community support officers can stop you and ask questions about what you're doing in that area. You may be stopped on the street or in your car.The power of stop and search also allows the police to search you if they suspect you might be carrying an illegal substance or something that could be used as a weapon.Source - http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/YoungPeople/CrimeAndJustice/CrimeAndTheLaw/DG_10027690
  • Stop & Search is a significant issue for people living in our areaBetween 2007 and 2008 stops and searches have increased threefold
  • Despite or maybe due to this incredible increase, only 6 in every 10,000 stop and searches results in an arrest6in10,000Think about that
  • This means that 99.9% of all Stop & Searches affect people who are innocent of anything99.9%incredible
  • Imagine how that makes all these people feel:Disempowered – you have no control over what is happeningFrustrated – you have no idea what you are allowed to do or notConfused – what now, what are my rights?
