Reason for Authority (Brief Summary for Publication)
#POWERS | We’ll again be using Section 60 powers in and around Birmingham city centre tonight. This gives us the power to stop and search people we suspect may be involved in violence involving weapons, without the need to have reasonable grounds. The S60 is in place from 6pm until 6am tomorrow (1 January) and follows violence involving weapons during the last week. Our priority is to keep you safe. If you have any information on knife crime, contact us on Live Chat on our website west-midlands.police.uk. In an emergency dial 999.
