Police: Stop and Search

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 27 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how long on average a police officer took to (a) make an arrest, (b) issue a caution and (c) conduct a stop and search procedure in England in the latest period for which figures are available. (249875)

There are no centrally held data on the time taken to (a) make an arrest, (b) issue a caution and (c) conduct a stop and search procedure in England. This will vary greatly depending on the circumstances of the case and the amount of investigation that precedes these procedures.
