Police stop and search in Northern Ireland

8th November 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The use of stop and search powers by the Police Service of Northern Ireland remains a relatively unchallenged policing tactic, but is being used at a higher level than any other police service in the UK.

Evidence shows that stop and search has little impact on overall crime figures. So why has this police power become the norm?

Join Dr John Topping as he examines the impacts on crime and the social costs of police stop and search powers in Northern Ireland.
