Ethnic minorities and the police

Chaired a meeting of a new group keen to raise the issue of what barriers exist to black and ethnic minorities in the police.

The idea is to hold an event for young people where we can really examine the truth of what it is like in the police force if you are not white. It isn’t only about attracting ethnic minorities into the police – but also tackling the reasons why so many leave – many more than white officers.

This meeting was really still at the early stages of discussing how best to go about it, what were the aims and objective, how could its success be managed and so on.
