BAME OFFICERS ‘treated differently’ in disciplinary processes report finds

105

Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) finds in its first PEEL legitimacy report that Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) police staff and officers are more likely to be treated differently in disciplinary processes to their white colleagues.

A force is considered to have legitimacy if those working in it are seen by the public consistently to behave fairly, ethically and within the law. These are important factors in building and maintaining the trust and cooperation of the public.
