“This briefing outlines the changes that the coalition government are proposing to Schedule 7, the widest ranging stop power in the UK. First, the current powers available to officers at ports under Schedule 7 are outlined before a discussion on the data of its use is included followed by an account of the impact it has had on communities. The proposed changes to the power under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Police Bill are then outlined before StopWatch's own proposals for changes on the power. An appendix is included at the end of this briefing which contains more detailed data on use and convictions.”
