Stop & Search over 65's

Question

Over the last three years, how many persons over the age of 65 have been stopped and searched?

How many of these searches were positive? (I.e. an item was found)

I would be grateful if this information could be broken down by age.

If you can only provide age brackets, and not exact ages (such as 65-70, 70-75 etc.) – please provide the age of the oldest person who was stopped and searched by your force – and whether this returned a positive result.

I would like the information above broken down separately for the last three calendar years (Jan-Dec) for 2013, 2014, and 2015.
