Are we listening to officers?

This article in the Sunday Herald By Paul Hutcheon is interesting.

“Police chiefs warn officers to step up stop and search”

Surely the question to ask is.. Why aren’t officers doing enough ‘stop and search’ …. ?

-Is it that they are too lazy and would rather sit in the office drinking coffee?  I doubt it.

-Is it because there aren’t enough suspicious citizens to stop? Could be.

-Do they think stop and search is counter-productive?  If so , why?

and if there are ‘no targets’ for them to hit, how do we know they aren’t doing enough stop and search?
