Abstract

HMIC has just published a review that is strongly critical of ‘stop and search’, the controversial police power that has been known to disproportionately target minorities, to be inefficient, and to damage trust in the police. Tim Newburn welcomes the review and asks whether Theresa May’s latest initiative will lead to the radical reform so many have been seeking for so long.
