Reason for Authority (Brief Summary for Publication)
From the Section 60 authorisation there were over 30 individuals stop and searched. No items were recovered from any person. The community were involved in the operation last night and the IAG remain supportive of this tactic in the defined area. I have considered the proportionality of this authorisation. The nominated area is confined to the impact area of Sparkbrook which is also a defined beat area. There is also cognisance being taken of members of the public that may be using the area to go about their business in terms of the area having local eateries etc. Officers have been specifically briefed on this. I have considered the necessity of the tactic and do consider it is necessary given the violence that has occurred and the likelihood of it reoccurring. I am authorising the section 60 in the area defined by the map between 1400 – 0200 hours
