Ask a Traffic Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good morning, welcome to just answer, I am a solicitor in England and Wales and will look to help you with your question.
The problem you would have is that the police do have the powers to stop and search and they can rely on that to justify their conduct. If you are concerned that these aren’t random and that something is triggering their exercise of stop and search power then I would suggest that you do a Data Subject Access request from which you may be able to see if anything is noted that is causing the stop and search. Only then will be able to challenge the police conduct
any follow up do not hesitate to send your message, I am glad to clarify anything. All the best.
Hi, thank you for your response and don’t apologise for the follow up. You can say all information held as you are not aware of what information is triggering their searches. You can limit it by a time period if you know it only started eg “ all information held on me from January 2020 to today as this is the period when you have stopped and searched me excessively”.
You are welcome.
