A new series of workshops aimed at giving people an understanding of police Stop and Search has been launched.

MF Youth consultants, in partnership with Bedfordshire Police, are delivering workshops on the subject of Stop and Search and held the first one at the end of January.

The free one-day training programmes, which will be held regularly over the next few months, are designed to help members of the public, and in particular young people, understand their rights when being stopped and searched.

Jermaine Hall, who attended the first workshop, said: “The workshop helped me understand our rights as a member of the public and the duties of police officers during a stop and search.”
