Newry City Sinn Féin councillor Brendan Curran has called on the PSNI to provide a detailed breakdown on the reasons behind ‘Stop and Search’ powers being used in the area. Speaking to Newry Times, Curran said, “I have no problem with people being stopped and searched if it prevents activities such as drug pushing and robberies from taking place but I do feel that it would be beneficial if DPP members and indeed members of the public were provided with a breakdown of the reasons for people being stopped and searched.” “This information would be useful in the prevention of crime and would give people a better understanding of the type of crimes which are taking place in the area. The publication of categories of crime leading to individuals being stopped and searched would further demonstrate the accountability and transparency which the public demands of local policing,” Curran added.
