Stop and search community trigger

Under the Best Use of Stop and Search Scheme you can contact us if you have a concern about the way the police are using stop and search within your community.

You can access stop and search maps, statistics and charts by visiting Police.uk, selecting your neighbourhood, and click “Stop and search”.

Please outline your concerns in relation to Stop and Search within your community area. You may wish to talk about specific incidents or a general feeling of stop and search.

The Community Trigger can be activated by either individuals or groups. Does this issue affect more than one household or business premise? Please provide as much detail as possible

If you are an individual, who else have you spoken to in the community? For example, neighbours, community leaders, local councillors, local action groups or other voluntary bodies.

How are these incidents affecting you?
