The statistics requested are presented below with the exception of sexual orientation. The Metropolitan Police Service does not currently record details of the sexual orientation of its staff. Work is under way to develop a `self service' facility that will enable individuals to record their sexual orientation on the Metropolitan Police Human Resources system.
