    In my experience, no one dare stop and search anyone anymore. Every one is scrutinised and if its felt it wasn’t justified they will go after you and do your legs and the person searched -invariably a known criminal – will get compo innit. So it doesn’t get done. Simple. I think most cops these days are so fed up of being blamed and heavily scrutinised for just wanting to keep the good people safe from the wolves that as long as they can come home having done the basics and not having being seriously hurt or worse then that’s all they do. If its not their own forces, its the IPCC or the blasted government making everyday policing more and more impossible and putting the public at risk.

      That’s just appalling. I’m not suggesting that Stop/Searches are conducted without grounds, I never have. However, if the grounds exist then the officer should do his/her duty without fear or favour. I’m not convinced that it’s a lawful order to instruct officers to desist from S&S if the grounds exist, or that they should be subjected to the threat of discipline if they comply with the requirements of s1 of PACE
