The Royal College of Policing produced new guidance for Stop and Search training in 2016. StopWatch participated in the consultation process, feeding back on the strengths, and areas for improvement, in the latest guidance.

The Royal College of Policing is the professional body for policing. Its role is primarily to offer training and guidance for the best practice policing in England and Wales. Following consultation from a range of stakeholders, the College published the updated version of the Stop and Search guidance online in 2016. After carefully examining this new guidance on Stop and Search, StopWatch has produced a written response to the consultation (below).
