To combat the problem of violent crime across the country, Theresa May recently held a summit to discuss the rising knife crime rate in the UK.

Following that summit, Mrs May also proposed to give police more stop and search powers in a bid to stop the problem.

Home Secretary, Sajid Javid has also backed these proposals from Mrs May.

The pair want to give law enforcement stop and search powers without “reasonable grounds”.
