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. The evaluation of phased implementation drew on interviews with operational officers, police statistics, observations of patrols, costs information, and interviews with members of the public stopped by the police. This report outlines findings and learning points from the evaluation.
