Southwark College invited the London Metropolitan Police to deliver a specialised interactive session to their adult students on the Business and Law course. The workshop took place as part of their course module to support student learning on ‘stop and search’ protocols carried out by the police. 

Students benefited from learning how local communities are supported, when ‘stop and search’ is actioned by police, protocols for how it is actioned and explored the value of the police using ‘stop and search’ appropriately. Students were also given an insight on the various options and career opportunities with the London Met.

Jai Sharma, studying Business and Law, said: "It was a really good session and helped my understanding of how ‘stop and search’ protocols are carried out by police officers. We all received an information card at the end, which was packed with useful and specific details. I'm pleased PC Stephenson delivered the session, as it's relevant to what I'm learning which helps broaden my understanding of the topic." 

PC Constable Stephenson said: “I enjoyed coming in and students were happy to take part and learn about ‘different view’, stop and search workshop. Students were engaged and had questions about the ‘stop and search’ protocols. Thank you to Southwark College for having me in and sharing an insight with their students on the opportunities with London Metropolitan Police.”
