He’s doing his job, he explained sec 1 PACE, is that area well known for burglaries or robberies?The grounds he gave are what I have detailed above. He stated that he thought the bulge was stolen goods. It was a section 1 PACE search so no requirement for a senior officer to approve. That is a section 60 search. The search record clearly states S1 PACE.
My question here is surrounding the grounds. Are they strong enough? If not then was it lawful? Ultimately my thought is this young cop has attempted to get an easy search completed for his probationary portfolio. But that's my opinion and not fact.
Bunch of youths hanging around looking dodgy? More than enough grounds.
I’m surprised he didn’t find any weed, what who said that
