The Existential Risks of Police Stop and Search Practices

Wednesday 30 September 2015, 14:00 – 16:00pm

This joint forum event is in partnership with the West London BMER Forum, Hounslow Faith Hate Crime Forum and Ealing Inclusion Forum

This event will address the impact that stop and search has on those groups disproportionately targeted and how they feel about their place in society, with a focus around race and the use of police powers. In seeking to protect the rights of the majority, the police at times infringe certain individual rights, such as the right to privacy or to freedom of movement and association. However, they are only permitted to do so if the infringement is rational, proportionate and lawful. Yet the evidence shows that, on the contrary, some police forces are using their powers disproportionately suggesting they are stopping and searching individuals in a way that is discriminatory, inefficient, and a waste of public money.
