This report sets out the CJA’s super-complaint into section 60 stop and search. It draws on submissions from national and grassroots organisations, academics and former police officers as well as the CJA’s own research. The CJA argues that section 60 is harmful, ineffective and unnecessary, and calls for the government to repeal the power. It also recommends how community scrutiny of wider stop and search could be made more effective.
Annex 1 contains submissions from supporting individuals and organisations discussing their concerns around section 60.
Annex 2 is a deep analysis of data around section 60, secured through Freedom of Information requests.
