London’s Legal Backing

Section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act gives police the right to search anyone in a defined area at a specific time when they believe there is the possibility of serious violence; or that a person is carrying a dangerous object or offensive weapon; or that an incident involving serious violence has taken place and a dangerous instrument or offensive weapon used in the incident is being carried in the area.
