From Superintendent Susan Peters – Force Lead for Stop & Search

We apologise for the lack of stop and search data from March 2019 onwards. This is due to technical issues and a recent upgrade which will provide more information to you in the future. We are working hard to resolve this and hope to have this available as soon as we can. If you have any specific enquiries please contact stopsearch@btp.pnn.police.uk and we will do our best to answer them.

Thanks for your understanding.
