Stop and search power abuse

 
April 8th 2015
 

Homeless charities in Glasgow have challenged Police Scotland over fears that homeless people are being unfairly stopped and searched.

The Marie Trust made a complaint about ‘heavy-handed’ policing outside its city centre premises in January, while the Simon Community Scotland says street workers have also raised concerns about rough sleepers being routinely stopped and searched.

Political leaders have called on police to ensure that their powers are not misused.

The force has been plagued with controversy since it emerged that levels of stop-and-search were disproportionally higher in Scotland than in London.
