We hold bi-monthly stop and search scrutiny panels.

These groups, made up of members of the public, allow us to review feedback, submitted grounds complaints and determine best practice when it comes to stop and search.

The members of the panel reflect the views of communities across South Yorkshire and provide accountability to the public in the analysis of the grounds alongside learning more about how, why and when we utilise this power. We may also use Body Worn Video to demonstrate interactions with the public.

Our stop and search scrutiny panels are run in each district by the neighbourhood policing Chief Inspectors, but if you would like to join our scrutiny panel, please contact Chief Inspector Sarah Gilmour at
