Message to ACPO President – response to Lawrence verdict

ACPO President Sir Hugh Orde,

In light of the historic conclusion to the trial of two men for the murder of Stephen Lawrence and the public reaction to these developments particularly the black community. I would respectfully suggest that thirteen years on, a window of opportunity is now wide open to the Police Service to examine its response to the MacPherson Lawrence 70 Recommendations and that you use your good offices to urgently draw this to the attention of all (ACPO) Chief Officers.

Charles Crichlow, NBPA President
