Stop and Search Statistics

The tables below show Stop and Search data from April 2017.

Please note that Home Office guidance is that only one outcome should be recorded per stop. The outcome that is recorded is generally the first outcome reached. For example if an individual is arrested and later cautioned, the outcome will be the arrest and not the subsequent caution.

This financial year (April -July 2017) South Yorkshire Police have conducted 678 Stop and Searches.
