NBPA Response to Comments by Home Secretary Sajid Javid

Home Secretary I would draw your attention to the hate crime figures your own department released this week. These revealed a 14% increase in race hate crime between the period 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 and a 40% increase in religious hate crime over the same period. Those statistics also show a clear link between national incidents and spikes in Race Hate Crime. Your words will be used against Asian members of British communities who would equally condemn paedophile of grooming gangs regardless of their race. And you have made targets of BAME police officers and staff which form 7% of your own English & Welsh police force’s.” Tola Munro, Gwent Police, President of the National Black Police Association
