The MPS employs a variety of methods to search for weapons from systematic searches of specific locations to intelligence led searches of individuals. A range of different recording systems centrally and across boroughs are used to record the outcomes. As such it is not possible to provide a complete answer to this question. I have asked MOPAC to contact you directly with a more detailed explanation.
