Reason for Authority (Brief Summary for Publication)
#POWERS | We’ll also be using Section 60 powers in the #Handsworth and #Lozells areas until 5am tomorrow (31 December). It follows recent disorder and this allows us to stop and search people we suspect may be involved in violence involving weapons, without the need to have reasonable grounds. As always our main focus is to keep everyone safe. If you have any information on knife crime, contact us on Live Chat on our website  In an emergency dial 999.
