Police stop and search powers are to be enhanced under Boris Johnson’s new plan to crackdown on crime.

Measures unveiled on Tuesday include changes to controversial police powers to search people without suspicion in areas where serious violence could break out.

The government said it would be “permanently relaxing voluntary conditions” for the use of section 60 powers as part of their plan to “empower police to take more knives off the streets”. ivermectin horse wormer chewy.com

He added: “I think that giving the police the backing that they need in law to stop someone, to search them, to relieve them of a dangerous weapon – I don’t think that’s strong-arm tactics, I think that’s a kind and a loving thing to do,”

“The people who often support stop and search most passionately are the parents of the kids who are likely themselves to be the victims of knife crime.”
