People have until midnight today (Tuesday 24th September) to take part in a Home Office consultation on stop and search.

Members of the public can have their say on the effectiveness of the stop and search power, which is especially important in relation to combating gangs, knife crime and drug offences.

The government has so far had an extremely positive response to the consultation. A shorter online poll is also available as an alternative to completing the full consultation document.
