Stop Searches Between 2011/12-2015/16

Question

Could you please provide me with the following information; For the calendar years 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 could you please provide me with the TOTAL number of Stop & Searches carried out by your officers for ANY reason. I do not need the totals further broken down in any way apart from the year.

Answer

Please find the information in the table below. Please note unfortunately we are unable to supply the information by calendar year as this would attract the section 12 exemption.  The information we have provided you is an extract from the Home Office Stop Search return we complete. The information is extracted in financial years only. Please note the 2016/17 data is currently being compiled.
