The Home Office is currently collecting information on authorisations made under section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 and the data will be published in due course.

The Home Office routinely collects and publishes statistics on the number of stop and searches under section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994. Data are published annually in the ‘Police Powers and Procedures, England and Wales’ statistical bulletin, the latest of which can be accessed here:
