Our officers have joined forces with college students in the production of a film about stop and search.
The Derby College media students, all aged between 17-19-years, were keen to produce a short film about stop and search and its consequences for young people.
Filming took place yesterday, Tuesday, May 6, with the students and officers from our St Mary’s Wharf Police Station in the city.
Sergeant Emma Marshall, who helped in the filming, said: “We were only too pleased to help out with the filming.
“Stop and Search is an important tactic for us in our fight against crime but we do realise that using the power can have an impact on those we are searching, particularly young people.
“Having a group of young people produce a short film which will include, what powers we have, when and why we use them and what rights they have, is great for us to be involved in.
“We had a great day with the students, sharing views, being involved in the filming and we are looking forward to the end result.”
