Supplementary notes

Data from 2009/10 onwards includes the British Transport Police (BTP). BTP did not provide data to the Home Office prior to 2009/10, therefore data from before this period are not directly comparable with more recent years.
Total stop and search figures from 2005/06 onwards are presented unrounded. In previous publications in this series, they have been rounded to the nearest 100.
3. In March 2011, section 47A replaced section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 following a review by the Home Secretary. Up to the year ending March 2017, there had been zero stops and searches under this power.
