The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry recommended that all stops (as well as searches) should be recorded by the police and a copy given to the person stopped. The recording of stops was introduced through a process of phased implementation, starting initially in five sites in England and Wales, with the aim of identifying the most effective approaches to recording. As part of a wider evaluation, 111 members of the public who had been stopped during phased implementation were interviewed by MORI about their experiences and views. This report outlines findings and learning points from this research.
