Title The police are accused of ‘harrassment’ over worrying use of stop and search Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet The Canary Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 26/05/2018 Description Queens University Belfast has published research into young people’s experience of police ‘stop and search’. It reveals a large community divide; questions how the police conduct ‘stop and search’, and exposes how little trust there is in the force among young Catholics.
It also reveals that young, disadvantaged Catholics are less trusting of the police than their Protestant neighbours.
Main findings of research
Dr John Topping and Dr Dirk Schubotz’s work looked at ‘stop and search’ powers in Northern Ireland relating to the Police and Criminal Evidence Order 1989 (PACE) and the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (MDA).
