Assessing the impact of police-initiated stop powers on individuals and communities: the UK picture

Abstract

“There is no compelling ‘business case’ for the present level of stop and search ... it has a deeply damaging effect on society; it impacts negatively on the law abiding population and is cause of a loss of public support for and de-legitimation of the police. It increases the frequency of adversarial encounters – some of which have the potential to trigger public disorder – and contributes to accelerating the flow of young black people disproportionately into the criminal justice system” Bowling and Philips (2007: 959-60).
