Is Stop-And-Search Breaking Down Our Trust In The Police Force?
(2013)
  • Sophie Banat
Abstract

Stop & searching was introduced into the UK as a measure to help combat crime. The uncertainly on what constitutes a stop search has led to a high proportion of non arrests, leading to privacy and racial issues. This article briefly analyses the significance this has on the community and to what extent it is being used successfully.
