  9. Stop & Search FAQs

    A stop or stop and search occurs when someone is asked to account for themselves Questions such as ‘What are you doing?’, ‘Where have you been?’, ‘What are you carrying?’ or ‘Where are you going?’ mean that the officer is asking someone to account for themselves. When this happens the officer must give that person a record of the event. The way in which the stop or stop and search is conducted by a police officer or police community support officer is set out in law and must be followed. Content
  10. Best Use of Stop & Search

    Dorset Police voluntarily signed up to the Home Office's Best Use of Stop and Search Scheme in August 2014. The scheme aims to help significantly reduce the overall use of stop and search, deliver better and more intelligence-led stop and search, and improve stop-to-arrest ratios. Part of Dorset Police's commitment to this scheme is offering members of the public the opportunity to accompany officers out on patrol. The Lay Observation Scheme allows people to see a range of police activity. Content
