Q3 Stop and Search and Use of Force Update

Report of the Commissioner of the City of London Police.


Members received a report of the Commissioner on the Stop and Search and Use of Force Data for Quarter 3.


Regarding the disproportionality index, it was less than the MPS but above the City of London Police two-year average which was concerning. There was a timing issue on the Home Office data extract and processing this in time for committee.


Full information, including clarification on what ‘use’ of a baton includes, would be in the fuller report. On tasers, this had been drawn and aimed at people on 18 occasions. It was used on one occasion.


There would be more information in the next report on strip searches.


Officers were to confirm at the next meeting whether Emotionally and Mentally Disturbed (EMD) were those with confirmed mental health diagnosis.


A copy of the full report was to be shared with Members of the Committee if available ahead of the May meeting.


RESOLVED, that the report be noted.
