Police Power: Stop and Search

Sarah Best

20th December 2019

This video from BBC Stories documents the police power of stop and search.

Figures show that between 2017-2018, there were 3/1000 stop and searches for white people compared to 29/1000 for black people.

This video could be used for Crime and Deviance (including: social distribution of crime/ethnicity, punishment, labelling).

The video does contain strong language and some scenes that people may find distressing.
