Hertfordshire Stop and Search Scrutiny Panel Public Meeting

Summary

One of the most important powers Police Officers have is the ability to stop and search an individual, where there are grounds to. This is vital to help fight crime and keep communities safe.

The Police and Crime Commissioner set up the Hertfordshire Stop and Search Scrutiny Panel in 2015 following the introduction of some reforms from the then Home Secretary. The Panel meet monthly to review the use of stop and search powers by Hertfordshire Constabulary by dip-sampling stop search records, scrutinising summary data and reviewing body worn video footage of stop and search encounters.

The meeting will give members of the public an opportunity to see the panel in action. The PCC is inviting you to come and meet existing panel members, senior members of the Constabulary and the Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner, David Gibson.
