Reason for Authority (Brief Summary for Publication)
#POWERS | We’ll be using Section 60 powers in Birmingham East tonight after several incidents of disorder following the arrests of seven people suspected of being involved in a firearms incident in Hockley. Section 60 powers enable us to stop and search people we suspect may be involved in violence, without the need to have reasonable grounds. The powers will cover the B8 and B9 postcodes of the city, as on the map, and we’ll have increased patrols in place. Our priority is to keep you safe. If you have any information on gun or knife crime, contact us on Live Chat on our website  In an emergency dial 999.
