Y-Stop is an initiative run by the drugs and the law charity, Release. It is a stop and search project run by young people for young people.
It recently publicised a useful infographic showing information about the number of young people under 18 stopped and searched in the year up to March 2014.
Just 11% of these stops led to arrests and the Metropolitan Police carried out 39% of all stop and searches on young people.
From 1 September 2015, you can download the app (here for Android), search iTunes for YStop. The app is a tool to monitor how stop and search is conducted. It helps users film and collect your own evidence and share it with Y-Stop, no longer having to rely on police records. It makes it easier for users to report or complain about what happened and access support and advice.
