The National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the College of Policing today welcome T/Deputy Assistant Commissioner Dr Alison Heydari, as the appointed Programme Director for the Police Race Action Plan.
Earlier this week, the National Black Police Association delivered a special conference in partnership with the Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation, the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC), College of Policing, and the University of East London.
The National Police Chiefs’ Council has responded to the findings of a super-complaint into how police deal with cases involving ethnic minority victims of sexual abuse, including those at risk of honour-based abuse.
Police chiefs have reaffirmed their determination to ensure an anti-racist police service after 1,600 Black and Black heritage officers and staff across 44 forces gave their views on what it’s like to be a Black person in policing.
The Police Race Action Plan released by National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) and the College of Policing sets out the commitment of Chief Constables in England and Wales to become an anti-racist police service and to explain or reform race disparities.
The plan will now be subject to further independent scrutiny with the public, police officers and staff and experts invited to share their views before it is finalised in December 2022.
Independent experts with a passion for championing inclusion and race equality have been invited to apply their skills and experience to address long-standing challenges in the relationship between Black people and the police.
