Abstract

Extract from 'The police targeting of stop and search' core research report. In order to help further understand the deterrent effect that searches may have, s60 search powers were examined due to the objective of their targeted impact to certain offences and their tendency of aiming to disrupt criminal behaviour rather than generate arrests. The results revealed that s60 searches had little general impact on drugs and weapons offences, and compounded the disproportionate targeting of searches to young people.
