Stop and search

Please find official BTP monthly statistics for stop and searches carried out across England and Wales.

The below analysis covers specifics periods of stop and search data.

It is based on the latest stop and search figures compiled as of time of publication. Numbers may change slightly as Divisions continue to enter details of encounters.

The data provided below is provisional and has not been audited. For this reason it may not be directly comparable with Home Office statistics. Calculations on very small sample sizes should be treated with caution and may not reflect the true nature of stop and search activity.

We are working on better ways to show you our stop and search data and this will be in place before the end of March 2017.
