POLICE Scotland is wrongly recording "several hundred thousand" stop-searches a year. POLICE Scotland is wrongly recording "several hundred thousand" stop-searches a year. The national force has come under increasing political scrutiny over what its own numbers have made look like a tactic of mass frisking, including of children. However, its chief constable, Sir Stephen House, has now admitted that vast numbers of routine encounters, such as taking alcohol from youngsters, had skewed official statistics. Speaking before his main civilian watchdog, the Scottish Police Authority or SPA, on Friday Sir Stephen took personal responsible for "some mistakes in data gathering and presentation". The chief constable had been summoned before the SPA after the BBC reported figures that appeared to show the force breaching its own policy - announced last summer - of not carrying out consensual searches on under-12s were also wrong. The broadcaster had said there had been 356 such suspicionless searches since the change in policy. It had obtained the numbers under Freedom of Information laws - "legislatively, not consensually", the chief joked. The force had not wanted to release them, telling the broadcaster they thought the numbers were corrupted. The body representing rank-and-file officers has long argued that Scottish statistics for stop-and-search were being inflated - and that resulting meaningless figures were sparking political controversy. The SPA on Friday was told the latest analysis suggested that the actual number of under-12s subjected to consensual searches was 18. Most were youngsters stopped by police after youth disorders before their ages could be checked. Sir Stephen said "I don't think we should routinely be using consensual search on children. But it is a policy, not a law,. if my officers step outside the police and they have got a good reason, they will get 100% support." He said that if so-called "interventions" - for example, when officers remove alcohol from children - were removed from figures there would be dramatic reduction in the wholesale number. He said: "They would reduce by several hundred thousand. "Why is is that Police Scotland stops so many more people than the Metropolitan Police or the New York City Police? "Because we record as much of what we do as possible and, frankly, we are damned for going further in recording our contacts with citizens. "I think we need to record them in the right box." The representing rank-and-file officers has for some years warned that stop-search figures have been inflated by what it regards as a "targets culture". A spokesman Scottish Police Federation or SPF said the SPA meeting at which Sir Stephen was speaking could be "best summarised by saying 'the numbers are guff'". Sir Stephen denies individual targets for the number of searches - although he has set targets for the share of searches that are "positive", that find something. Vic Emery, the SPA chairman ended the meeting by challenging Sir Stephen to look at what effect any targets have had on the issue. The force, meanwhile, has said it believes that consensual searches should be reviewed. One of Sir Stephen's deputies, Rose Fitzpatrick, laid out potential consequences of that, including the danger statutory searches could be seen as more confrontational. She also suggested that many consensual searches, about a third, were nominally made for alcohol. There is no statutory power to frisk for such drinks. Police believe such a power should be considered. http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/home-news/police-admit-over-counting-several-hundred-thousand-stop-and-searches-after-high-numb.118459735?utm_source=www.heraldscotland.com&utm_medium=RSS%20Feed&utm_campaign=Scottish%20News
Youngest around the country Sussex Police have disclosed their youngest authorised firearms officer currently is 23 years of age. Thames Valley Police have disclosed their youngest employed police officer is 20 years of age. Anyone have any more?
I thought this was interesting... Apparently a motorists insurance premium is lightly to increase after a no fault collision at a higher rate than after a fault collision When inquiring about this, apparently statistics back up the insurance companies. A driver who is at fault in a collision is more lightly to improve driving, therefore less lightly to be involved in another collision. Whereas a driver who is not at fault can believe his driving is good and not in need of improvement, and more lightly to be involved in another collision.
