Know your rights on stop and searches
29 November, 2019
YOUNG men are being given help to learn about their stop and search rights.
Figures released to the Tribune last year showed only 1 in 20 cases of police use of Section 60, allowing officers to stop and search anyone without reasonable grounds of suspicion, led to arrests
The new “Auntee” project is providing one- to-one meetings for young men concerned about the process.
Sheri Lawal, who chairs the Stop and Search Monitoring Group for Islington, said: “We are delivering this project so that people know what to do if they are not happy with the stop and search and feel that they have been treated unfairly.”
Those interested in attending the sessions should contact the service via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
