A new section 60 order covering a larger area of Milton Keynes is now in place until 5pm tomorrow (Thursday 31/3)
You will continue to see us out and about, carrying out stop and searches to keep our streets safe.
A section 60 order can only be put into place temporarily when a violent incident has taken place or it is believed that serious violence could take place. The order lowers the suspicion level that we need to search someone so can be really useful in quickly finding and removing weapons.
Outside of these times, we still have the power to stop and search individuals for weapons and we do this regularly as part of our normal patrols.
Please do stop and speak with us if you have any concerns.
