Internal Stop and Search scrutiny panel

In October 2019 we created an internal Stop Search scrutiny panel, in collaboration with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC).

The panel reviews samples of searches to ensure Stop and Search is being used legitimately, identify best practice and suggest areas of improvement.

Findings are published in quarterly reports. View the Scrutiny Report for October 2019-June 2020 (PDF).

Find out more about the Scrutiny of Police Powers Panel on the OPCC website.
