PSNI have launched an online survey aimed at gathering information on the thoughts and experiences of young people (aged 11-18) regarding the PSNI’s use of stop and search powers. 

This survey is designed to gather information on young peoples understanding of the reasons behind police using stop and search powers, their knowledge and understanding of their own rights whilst being stopped and searched, their knowledge of how to complain and their opinion on the complaints process, their opinions on how effective stop and search is within communities and their thoughts on whether they feel stop and search affects their opinions and trust of policing within their communities.

The survey contains a maximum of 22 questions and should only take around 5-10 minutes to complete.  The deadline for the survey is 11th June 2021.
