Social Exclusion and Criminal Justice: Policing in North London

Jayne Mooney, Middlesex University

This is a report of a study of stop and search practices by the police in North London. It documents the focus on Irish and African Caribbean youth, examines the degree which this can be explained by class and age demographics and questions the conventional black-white categorization. The nature and basis of instutitonalised racism is examined and a much honed down, information-led policing policy is advocated.
