“We also have S60 powers available from now until 11:59 p.m. today.

“This means we can stop and search people we suspect are involved in violent crimes involving weapons, without good reason.

“We do not use the s60 powers lightly, but we must do everything we can to reduce the risk of further unrest. Our priority is protecting the public.”
