Answer for Stop and account

Answer for Stop and account

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The MPS conducted 209,000 stop and accounts in 2014. This reflects a reduction of 43% compared to 2013 when there were 360,000. While stop and account is a different power, this fall matches the ongoing fall in stops and searches due to improved training and supervision and the use of a more intelligence led approach.
