Stop and search data

We are proud to be taking part in the Home Office's Best Use of Stop Search Scheme (opens in a new window). The scheme aims to help reduce the overall use of stop and search, deliver more intelligence-led stop and search and improve stop-to-arrest ratios.

More information about what the scheme involves is provided by the College of Policing (opens in a new window).

Our most recent stop search data is available

You can view the most recent stop search data:

Stop and search data is published on a monthly basis for transparency and accountability and compliance with legislation and policies. Our stop search statistics are also available on POLICE.UK (opens as a new window).

Stop and search monitoring

We ensure stop and search is used fairly and effectively to help maintain public confidence by monitoring all stop and search activity.

Within the force we hold our own meetings to ensure we scrutinise stop and searches appropriately.

Community scrutiny

Our stop and search activity is also overseen by an independent Local Community Scrutiny Group which holds the force account on any stop search issues. 

The Local Community Scrutiny Group meets every three months. If you're interested in signing up, please email the scrutiny group
