NBPA President calls for Police and Crime Commissioners commitment to equality


The NBPA is working to ensure that elected Police and Crime Commissioners clearly understand the demands of policing in a modern diverse context and commit to the following:-


(1) Hold Chief Constables accountable on the implementation of anti-racism practice


(2) Ensure Police & Crime Panels reflect the diversity within the policing area


(3) Ensure that Chief Constables include within their Policing Plans, an anti-racism stance including a commitment to end racial profiling where it may exist


(4) Properly and consistently scrutinise Chief Constables on compliance with anti-racist and equality legislation


(5) Consult widely with diverse communities and reflect their needs and concerns within agreed policing plans
