Changes to Stop and Account: make your views known

The Metropolitan Police Service wants to know your views on Stop and Account. Stop and Account is when a police officer or Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) stops a person and asks them to explain why they are in a particular place, why they are carrying something or why they are behaving in a particular way. When this happens the police officer or PCSO records the time, date and place where the stop happened on a form and gives a record of the stop to the person stopped.
